Coe’s ‘fence-work’ to go up Thursday
Old Town Artist in Residence, Dan Coe, will  install his new mural on the Driftwood RV Park fence at 1 p.m. tomorrow (Thursday.) An artist reception and talk will immediately follow the installation at Bunnell Street Arts Center.
Coe’s hand-painted sign business began about 10 years ago in a downstairs studio below the Bunnell Street Arts Center. A sign commissioned for Maura’s Cafe inspired Coe to beautify and encourage Peninsula businesses with hand-painted signs. Since 2004, he has painted more than 100 signs around Homer.
