Cowtown mural highlights West Fargo history in The Yards
November 16, 2022
WEST FARGO– A new mural in downtown West Fargo was inspired to highlight the history behind West Fargo and the meatpacking industry along with adding in some other elements to represent North Dakota.
The “Cowtown” mural, located at the POW/MIA Plaza, 400 Sheyenne St, West Fargo, was completed by Edwin Degges and Lydia Welles.
Degges, a graphic designer for EPIC Companies and art coordinator for Epic Events, worked on the mural during a 50-hour process throughout the course of a week. With the help of Welles, a junior at North Dakota State University, they were able to complete the mural this fall.
