IRONWOOD - Volunteers and a Milwaukee artist were finishing a repair project Tuesday afternoon at the Historic Ironwood Theatre.

Water damage from a hole in the old roof was being repaired and some of the mural work had to be retouched.

A new roof has been installed at the theater and the damage from the hole in the old roof required repairs and painting.

David Strickland, of Affiliated Artists, Milwaukee, was familiar with the theater from 1994-'95, when he painted the murals over the stage area.

He said theater officials got in touch with him to do the job and he expected to get done later Tuesday or today.

Strickland said he was pleased to learn that the historic theater is receiving considerable use and is a focal point of the downtown.

The scaffolding for the repair work was donated and set up by Angelo Luppino Construction Company of Iron Belt, Wis.

Volunteers said Tuesday they were grateful for the company's contribution to the repair project.
