Downtown Waco mural portrays unification of community

WACO, Texas - A mural that ten Waco Independent School District high school students and four professional artists have been working on all summer is almost complete.

The mural is located on 315 University Parks Drive, next to Bicycle World. 

The internship program is called ArtPrenticeship, and is organized by Creative Waco, Prosper Waco and Waco ISD. The program began on June 4 and will run until July 31.

"Well, I love art in general. And I love creativity. So this process and this whole program was just a good opportunity for me to like express that and have a way to, like, to be busy during the summer with something I actually enjoy doing all the time," says Waco High student Naydia Bennett.

The designer says the mural portrays the unification of Waco as a whole. The mural is made up of origami cranes, which means "Hope" in different cultures.

The birds fly from east to downtown Waco, and represent the progress happening in Waco.
