The mural sheds light on the multigenerational history of the business as well as its community impact

Frederick, MD – Frederick Arts Council (FAC) announces the completion of a new large-scale mural on the side of the McCutcheon’s Apple Products building on South Wisner Street in downtown Frederick, MD, by artist Michael Rosato. The mural, visible from East Street, celebrates the legacy of the McCutcheon’s Apple Products company (currently in its fourth generation of family ownership), as well as the importance of manufacturing to East Frederick.

It was completed as part of the Frederick Arts Council’s Public Art Master Plan for Frederick County, which generates a workplan each year to place engaging public art in the community. The McCutcheon’s mural highlights Frederick’s unique sense of place by telling the story of a business and products which delight Frederick residents and visitors alike. The mural above all represents the people who have contributed to McCutcheon’s success, from its founders to those who work on the manufacturing floor.

“We are delighted to bring another amazing visual narrative of innovation in Frederick to life,” said Louise Kennelly, Executive Director of the Frederick Arts Council. “McCutcheon’s products are beloved in the region and their family business is an excellent example of the deeply rooted sense of community that exists here.”

Artist Michael Rosato specializes in designing and painting large-scale murals for public and private spaces. Rosato is best-known for his mural of Harriet Tubman in Cambridge, MD, at the Harriet Tubman Museum & Educational Center in Cambridge. Mr. Rosato’s paintings can be seen in venues across the country, including the Oklahoma City National Memorial in Oklahoma City, OK, the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC, the Loudoun Heritage Farm Museum, in Sterling, VA, the Headquarters of Bacardi in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the Texas Ranger’s Ballpark in Arlington, TX, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Museum in Cape Charles, VA.

Partial funding for the mural was provided by the Maryland State Arts Council.
