The Keep Saginaw Beautiful Committee and staff met with Adam Davenport (https://www.davenportstudios.com/). Adam hails from Louisiana but now resides in the Austin area. He’s well known for his versatility in realism and portraiture.
At the September 16, 2019 meeting, KSB deliberated and decided to paint a mural on the north side (southbound side) of the Northwest Plumbing Building. That plumbing building was once the home to the original Saginaw Texas Fire Station/Department. The KSB researched photos and selected this attached historic Fire Department photo as the idea behind this mural. This project was approved by the Saginaw City Council at their October 15, 2019 Meeting. This project should begin in November 2019 and would take up to 2 weeks to complete.

Art in the Saginaw’s Willow Creek Park
A few years ago, the Keep Saginaw Beautiful Committee (KSB) began a community-wide beautification project of wrapping the eight traffic signal boxes throughout the city. This project added both color and beauty to an otherwise uninteresting gray/silver traffic control box. This project was very well received from the residents and the community.
Over time, the KSB Committee has expanded their efforts for the fine artistic beautification of Saginaw Texas and has recently collaborated with local artist Erica Rosa for a project in Willow Creek Park. Currently (today), she is painting some of the manhole covers in the park to add art, beauty and color to an otherwise uninteresting manhole cover in spacious Willow Creek Park.
Ardent Mills Mural Presentation
On Monday, July 15, 2019, the City of Saginaw, the Keep Saginaw Beautiful Committee and Julien & Lambert Professional Photography presented Saginaw’s own Ardent Mills with a beautiful piece of photographic art for their appreciation of our partnership. The City and Ardent Mills collaborated on the “Welcome to Saginaw” art mural painted on the grain silo. The photo/art piece was professionally created by Malinda Julien.
