Friendswood library patrons Joe and Linda Boisvert were recently featured in a Galveston Daily News article entitled Community Comes Together to Paint by Galveston Island Beach Patrol chief, Peter Davis. The article details the Boisvert’s effort to refurbish the See-Wall mural that runs on the seawall from 61st to the Pleasure Pier at 25th Street. This 15 year old mural is two and a half miles long, covers 65,000 square feet and is the largest painting by numbers on the planet. 14,000 people shared in the original painting of the See-Wall mural. Vic Maceo and article author Peter Davis initiated the project and had the original vision 15 years ago. Joe and Linda Boisvert are currently working on a section around 54th street.
