We first met Amanda Miehle in brutjournal’s inaugural issue, which was published in September 2021. Around that time, her drawings had come to the attention of the photographer Bill Westmoreland, the magazine’s visual director, who had spotted them on a large banner hanging on the exterior wall of an industrial building in the town of Honesdale, in northeastern Pennsylvania.
Appearing in a group, Amanda’s drawings, which she had made with Sharpie marker pens on paper, were reproduced on that billboard-size banner. Known as “The Great Wall of Honesdale,” it is an unusual art-exhibition project produced by the Wayne County Arts Alliance. Each year, this Honesdale-based cultural organization sponsors an art contest whose winning entries are reproduced and featured during the summer months on the “Great Wall.”
