‘Love’ Letter

This “I Love Yankton” mural was completed in Yankton’s Meridian District earlier this month to welcome visitors coming in from Broadway on Third St. The large mural was created on the upper west side of the Ben’s Brewing Company building by Brookings artist Chuck Bennis, who also did mural work at the NFAA Easton Yankton Archery Center. Building owner Ben Hanten said in a social media video that the idea was first conceived a couple of years ago, and the mural was in the planning stage for about a year. It was up in time to welcome visitors to Riverboat Days.
