This idea was conceived in the mind of City of Manitowoc Water Treatment Facility employee Scott Krause in 2015, and in 2020 this painting came to life, after the City of Manitowoc came to us to paint this image of a rainbow trout on their giant gas sphere painted to look like a giant bobber. 

Let it exist to delight visitors after they arrive from Michigan on the USS Badger ferry, and add a splash of color to an heterotopic, industrial area.

Thanks to Hallman-Lindsey for paints and Hamann Construction for the donation of the lift.
