Mural For All


If you read yesterday's blog post, you saw some charming artists hard a work. This is the finished product, a wonderful mural entitled MURAL FOR ALL.  It was part of the 50th anniversary of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing which took the lives of 4 young girls in 1963.  It was a beautiful weekend of remembrance and healing for our city.  This mural, which consisted of 1800 individual tiles, hand painted this week at Railroad Park was designed by Russ Bennett for the non profit organization City Year.  It was well planned and executed and was done in record time.  I sat with a delightful group of children from a local school on Friday and proudly painted my tile. Yesterday I went back to capture the finished mural and looked for my tile.  I know it's up there somewhere!

It's just the right touch as a mural, for the subject.
