BOARDMAN Lake Trail users are engaged aesthetically as well as physically with the mural by NMC Fine Arts instructors Rufus Snoddy and Glenn Wolff and students Logan Hudson and Kiah Anderson (not pictured). Located on the trail’s east side, the 14-x-30-foot mural north of the University Center is one of three pieces of public art on the Traverse City loop. It opened last July to throngs of users—more than 1,100 per weekday and up to 1,700 on weekends. Wolff said the mural offered an experiential learning opportunity to the art students.
