Berthoud’s Roots
“Berthoud’s Roots” is a collaborative work by Susan Dailey and Eleanor Yates. This mural, on the landmark historic grain elevator in downtown Berthoud, is not only a tribute to the town’s agricultural roots, but to its modern spirit of community as well. Sponsored by the Berthoud Arts and Humanities Alliance.

We painted this mural in the studio on 55 pieces of fabric, and adhered it to the wall using lift trucks and lots of acrylic gel. Juli Schrader was our primary assistant throughout the project. We also had the support and assistance of Members of the Arts and Humanities Alliance including Gary Wamsley, Carol and Tom Patterson, to mention a few. The Berthoud community was very supportive throughout the process.
