Local artist Judy Cabral painted a mural on the side of a building near Brighton's park. The painting is of Lake Darling and is a tribute to Ding Darling for whom the lake is named. Among other accomplishments, Ding created the federal duck stamp program, so ducks appear on the mural. The city of Brighton received a $14,946 grant from the Washington County Riverboat Foundation for the mural and for playground restoration. Cabral said she spent 65 hours over several weekends to complete the painting.
