The walls of Hanke's Super Valu on Reed Street now explode with color, celebrating the rich agricultural history of our area. The Painted Ladies of Madison, WI created this mural. Agriculture and art students at Wittenberg/Birnamwood High School brainstormed with the artists to plan the mural. A summer school art class joined the Painted Ladies in executing the mural. The Hanke family, past and present, greet you as does Floyd Doering, a leader in the FFA locally, in the state and nationally. This was completed in the summer of 2007.

The mural is located on the east side of a building located on the northwest corner of the intersection of Howard Street and West Reed Street, at 100 West Reed Street, Wittenberg, Wisconsin 54499.
