Artist Chuck Tingley working on the new mural on Hertel Alley.

Artist Chuck Tingley is putting the spotlight on essential workers in a big way with a new mural on Hertel Alley. 

It honors postal workers, farmers, grocery store workers, police officers, firefighters, and doctors. 

Tingley started the project last week, funded by the Baird Foundation. 

The goal of the project is to remind future generations of what essential workers did during this unprecedented time.
