Sharp Literacy, Inc., Ryan and Larissa Braun & Brewers Community Foundation Partner on New “Growing Power” Mural at Miller Park

Sharp Literacy Inc. has partnered with Ryan Braun and his wife, Larisa, and Brewers Community Foundation on the creation of a “Growing Power” mosaic mural which will be featured throughout the rest of the regular season at Miller Park on the Loge level. 

The three panel, traveling mural will begin its tour at Miller Park and travel to various schools during the 2015/2016 school year.  The mural project is in conjunction with Sharp Literacy’s 12th “We Love to Learn” book entitled There Grows the Neighborhood: Agriculture in the City, which will be published this fall.  The mural and book will teach children about simple nutrition, where good foods originate and the concept of healthy eating for a strong, healthy life.

The Growing Power Mosaic Mural is on display at the top of the first-base side escalator on the Loge Level at Miller Park.
