Megan Troglio believes in adding a little color to the world. The Dunlap resident, now majoring in art at Columbia College in Chicago, is putting the finishing touches on several murals on the backside of C.T. Gabbert Redmodeling & Construction, 1323 SW Adams St., a building with walls already adorned by a number of murals. This isn't the first time the 20-year-old has participated in public art. "I worked on the Wabash Arts Corridor, a project that took about 15 hours," she said of her effort in downtown Chicago. When she's not working on murals, the Dunlap High School grad focuses on digital art. "I call myself an internet artist," she said, suggesting those curious about her work check out her website at meganltrolio.net.
