Local artist Nina Mickelsen donates painting to Rehoboth City Hall
A painting of the Rehoboth bandstand decorated with palm trees, beach balls and a flamingo now welcomes visitors to Rehoboth Beach Town Hall in the reception area. The local artist Nina Mickelsen donated the painting “Rehoboth Calling!” To the city.
Mickelsen created the painting with screen printing ink and acrylic. She said she was inspired by the bandstand, which provides fun music and entertainment for locals and visitors alike. “As a Rehoboth landmark, I wanted it to be a central element. In addition, I always find it funny when we display our flamingos and palm trees in summer, as if we want to be a bit more southern than us in terms of climate! It is the lightness of the heart, the love for our mid-Atlantic beach culture that I wanted to capture. I’m glad it’s in its rightful home. “
Mickelsen is an award-winning artist who has been on the local art scene since 2013. He lives and paints in Lewes. Mickelsen comes from Finland and has artistic roots in Scandinavian design. He creates contemporary work that is bold and colorful. She shows her graphic and abstract art in local art exhibitions and along the east coast from Connecticut to Florida.
