Students at The Art Institute of St. Louis are helping to beautify downtown Waterloo, IL with a series of painted murals, featuring historic pictures of Waterloo and old-time images. The murals are in-progress and will be found on the sides of buildings, including Bean Tree Café, Bountiful Blossoms and Bill Wirth’s insurance building. The mural found on the Bean Tree Café building is inspired by a photo of Andrew “The Waterloo Coffee Man” Lutz, and his float in the 1908 Farmers’ Institute Parade. Other murals depict vintage soda bottles.

The Art Institute of St. Louis is one of The Art Institutes, a system of over 50 schools throughout North America. Programs, credential levels, technology, and scheduling options are subject to change. Several institutions included in The Art Institutes system are campuses of South University or Argosy University.
