The new mural “Friendship Across Water” has been christened.  The dedication included a few remarks by members of the Seward Mural Society.  The group painted a replica of the mural that the city of Seward will be sending to Japan in September.  The replica is 1 quarter the size of the gift to our sister city.  Master Artist Justine Pechusal christened the mural at Murphy’s Inn, first with water from Resurrection Bay to symbolize the Pacific Ocean which lies between Seward and Obihiro, and then with champagne in a silver cannister.
