Painting The Town In Arkadelphia, Ark.
Through the traveling Mid-America Murals Project, "artists are working with small communities to translate their stories into dynamic visual poems on the walls of downtown buildings," says the project's lead artist Dave Loewenstein.
The group has already created colorful murals in Joplin, Mo., Newton, Kan. and Tonkawa, Okla.
This year they are in Arkadelphia, Ark., and they have chosen to spruce up the long west wall of the Honeycomb Restaurant, a sheltered workshop that provides developmentally disabled adults with opportunities to learn valuable skills and offers Arkadelphia a downtown restaurant with good, affordable food.
