A Canadian artist and her mother are busy transforming the plain wall above a Binghamton bar as they paint a massive mural.

Danae Brissonnet of Quebec has spent several days perched working on the public art project on the south side of the State Street building that houses the Rathskeller pub.

The 30-year-old Brissonnet is being assisted in the undertaking by her mom, Daphne, who said her daughter has always been interested in drawing.

The carousel-inspired mural is receiving support from the Upstate Revitalization Initiative and the Greater Binghamton Fund.

Danae Brissonnet said she expects the Binghamton project will be completed in less than two weeks.

The massive mural is being painted on what had previously been an unremarkable brick-colored wall adjacent to the former Binghamton Municipal Building. That structure had served for decades as City Hall. It recently was transformed into a 50-unit apartment complex.

Brissonnet said "it's always exciting" to create a mural the size of the downtown project.

CORRECTION: The headline on an earlier version of this story indicated the mural is being painted on a four-story building. It is a five-story structure.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
