Mural Brings Fresh Life to Wessels Headquarters

GREENWOOD, IND. — Wessels Company has announced that the large-scale, outdoor mural at their headquarters in Greenwood, Indiana is complete. It took just over a week for the sketching and painting to be completed on the 100-foot by 20-foot wall.

The mural depicts the company’s logo as well as its products, like air and dirt separators and expansion tanks, which are manufactured at the factory. From concept to final design, some changes were made in collaboration between Wessels Company and local artist Macey Dickerson.

“When [Wessels] initially sent me reference photos to incorporate into the mural design, the expanded view of the heat exchanger really caught my eye,” Dickerson said. “It was such a cool diagram and I knew I wanted that the be a prominent feature. I really like how that part looks.”

She added, “Painting the Wessels logo was also really fun. I like how the curviness of the font contrasts nicely with the rest of the mural, which is more geometric.”

 

Dickerson was assisted in painting by her brother, Garrett Dickerson and her friend, Nick Service. “I enjoyed the process of working with my brother and friend who helped me bring the design to life,” Dickerson said. “I usually do projects solo, so it was fun working in a team and sharing the experience. I also enjoyed getting to meet the employees at Wessels. Everyone was so friendly and supportive! When it was break time, people were sure to stop by and say ‘hi’ and give encouragement. I felt so welcome.”

Jim Fuller, president of Wessels Company, says he is pleased with how the mural turned out.

“It adds color and art to the neighborhood,” Fuller said. “It also conveys our pride in our products, our employees, and being part of the Greenwood community.”

New Mural Brings Outdoor Art to South Indiana

GREENWOOD, IND. — Wessels Company is announcing their partnership with local artist Macey Dickerson to create a brand-new large-scale mural at their headquarters in Greenwood, Indiana.

Dickerson was born and raised in Indianapolis and is a lifelong Hoosier. She is an alumni of Franklin College in Franklin, Indiana, where she studied painting. She has been painting and creating art since she was very young.

“I kind of don’t remember a time when I wasn’t painting,” Dickerson says. She works in a wide variety of mediums –clay, photography, digital art –but says she loves painting the most.
“I think the transformational effect of it is my favorite part. Especially with a mural,” she adds. “It just uplifts people and changes their attitude to be around art in a big way.”

Macey’s art has been all over Central Indiana, including the restaurant Chef Oya’s The Trap, as well as work for an interior design company and other temporary installments. “It creates this whole other world and atmosphere which I really, really love,” she said.

Dickerson has been commissioned to paint a large outdoor mural on the 108 by 20 foot exterior wall of Wessels Company’s main office and manufacturing facility. The art will face North Meridian street and will feature abstract shapes and water motifs suggestive of products manufactured by the company.

Wessels is currently collaborating with Macey to design the perfect mural to show the community what the company is all about.

“As a leading manufacturer of industrial water equipment, it’s sometimes hard to appreciate the beauty of such a practical line of business,” Wessels Marketing Manager Jay Fuller-Ng said. “I’m glad this project will give us an opportunity to add art to the community that celebrates what we do.”

Work on the mural will begin in mid-August and the finished art is expected to be unveiled in September of 2020.
