rivside_art_museumOur Thoro team member’s sister-in-law is an amazing, talented artist and she was commissioned to paint Riverside’s iconic symbol

It was a simple idea: Take the bell, part of Riverside’s iconic symbol, and decorate it for the holidays. Artist, Anna Vanover was commissioned to paint the 300 pound bell that hangs in the Riverside Art Museum. She spent about eight hours spread over four sessions painting holiday scenes around the bell’s entire circumference.

Anna’s finished work is in the December/January issue of Riverside Magazine and may be viewed in person at the Riverside Art Museum until at least Jan. 8, the final night of the Festival of Lights.
