The train painting is the first of many projects that are planned for a yearlong temporary art initiative along 20 blocks of Fond du Lac Ave. With buckets of bright-colored paint and wide paintbrushes, dozens of volunteers took to the street Sunday and created a work of art out of an otherwise dark city intersection below a wide and low railroad viaduct.
