In 1977, the head of the Wicks Park asked Carol Miron, who studied at the Art Institute in Chicago, to consider producing a “Saugatuck Seurat” on the walls of the restroom in the park. Saugatuck had just gained ownership of the park two years prior and wanted something memorable and artistic to reflect the creative character of its community.
Miron recreated “Sunday Afternoon on the lie de La Grande-Jatte” by Georges Seurat, accommodating the windows and doors seamlessly of the park’s bathroom.
