Trinity Lutheran Church commissioned the "Journey to a New Beginning" Mural. It is located at 1904 Winnebago St., Madison WI Additional funding came from Madison Community Foundation for equipment, and Hallman Lindsay Paints.
Produced by DAMA lead artists Jenie Gao (design), Alicia Rheal, Emida Roller, and Amy Zaremba.
"The Holy Trinity is alluded to throughout the imagery (three people, three concentric navigation forms, three doves), as the number three has recurred in different religions in human history. The Ash tree, a long-standing Christian symbol, was also relevant in Norse mythology, as the Tree of Life connecting Earth with the After Life. This also connects Trinity's mural with the church's Norwegian heritage and founders. Finally, the mural features a "choir of birds", consisting of Old and New World songbirds, some of which are known to migrate in mixed species flocks to form larger groups for protection. " - Jenie Gao, design/lead artist (DAMA)
