Since Mayor Arnold’s passing earlier this year, Museum Chairman Steve Czonstka wanted to do something special to commemorate his dedication and service as Mayor of Valparaiso for 53 years.  Czonstka approached Vanover, who had recently opened her art studio, and asked if she would be willing to do a portrait of the mayor.
