Metro Arts apprentices complete Freight House mural addition. Apprentices from Quad City Arts Metro Arts Youth Apprenticeship Program have finished painting four murals on the doors of Davenport's Freight House. These new panels complement the five panels completed by 2015 Metro Arts apprentices. Lead artist Sarah Robb, one senior apprentice, and seven apprentices painted murals at the Freight House, 421 W. River Drive, Davenport, during the fall session for the 2019 Metro Arts Youth Apprenticeship Program. Apprentices worked on weekends and weeknights after school in September and October. Designs for these panels were drafted by Metro Arts apprentices and reflect images that represent The Freight House and their Farmer's Market. The mural was sponsored and supported by the City of Davenport. For more information on the Metro Arts program, visit
