About the Project

Following the passing of Dean Rohrbach, West Reading's acclaimed Elm Street manager, the local community expressed their desires for a mural dedicated to his memory. This idea developed into Our Wings to Remember, a project that not only honors Dean's memory, but several others who had a creative influence in West Reading. The wings include...

...Delaney Brown's love of alligators, animal prints and bling style.

...Nancey Seghetti's mosaics and artwork.

...Jerry Theodossiou's love of ballroom dancing.

...Tina Coleman's love of faith and family.

...Dean's faithful dog Ruby and a poem by E.E Cummings.
