Bill Burgard: Art in the Sky Mural

May 31, 2016

A mural designed by Stamps Lecturer Bill Burgard for Ann Arbor’s Art in the Sky contest is now on display on a city water tower.

Burgard, an Ann Arbor-based freelance illustrator and designer, won the city’s Art in the Sky contest, as chosen by the public in an online poll.

His design depicting birds and fish is now on the 500,000-gallon steel tank, which the city determined needed to be recoated.

It features a swan, sandhill crane, woodpecker, and a bird of prey in flight, along with bluegill fish down below swimming in the Huron River.
