Eastside Mural Unveiling

April 5 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

The Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts and Culture will showcase a new community mural inspired by the history of music and entertainment once so prominent on the east side of the city. The location of the mural and unveiling on Friday, April 5th at 11:00 AM, is the Felix Lister Elks Lodge #1217 at 811 Homes Avenue in Wichita Falls.

The mural reveal is part of a greater initiative by The Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts and Culture, to integrate public art into community spaces. The 12’x36’ mural, “I Love You,” was created and installed by Master Artist Ralph Stearns, recognized nationally for his realistic and stunning images created seemingly overnight. Mr. Stearns’ work is the first of four murals to be designed and installed in the Eastside neighborhood, following numerous conversations with residents. Their input is guiding the development of the Eastside Mural Project.

The mural reveal will include comments by the artist and community members associated with the Eastside Mural Project; a reveal of additional mural sites; and, of course, the unveiling of the mural, “I Love You.” The Eastside Mural Project is funded in part by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts.

For more information, contact the Alliance at (940)500-4453 or info@wichitafalls.org.
