Walter Anderson believed that the artist had an obligation to the community. His 3,000 square feet of murals in the Ocean Springs Community Center were painted as a gift to the public. He did it for the grand sum of $1, a check he never cashed, epitomizing the role of culture in civic life.
every dollar brings more beauty.
