1997 - Blizzard players Kara Wolters (left) and Carla Berube are in the process of being immortalized in a mural on the side of the former G. Fox building in Hartford. The mural, which is sponsored by Reebok, was designed and is being painted by James Crespinel and Richard Nichols, of Seattle. On the scaffolding are Mike Nichols of Baltimore (left), James Crespinel (center, near Berube's face) and Richard Nichols (right). The mural is the first in what Crespinel hopes will be a series of murals around the country called "Athletes in Urban Landscapes."
