The Orange Mound Mural Project

Posted By on Mon, Apr 23, 2007 at 4:00 AM

At the Orange Mound Community Center, a group of young people are creating an indoor mural to brighten the neighborhood and provide an artistic outlet for students.

The participating teenagers, who attend Melrose High, Fairview Junior High, Airways Middle, and Sherwood Middle, decided on a cohesive design for the wall, with help from teaching artist Lurlynn Franklin.

On Saturday, April 28th, from 10:30 to noon, a reception to unveil the finished artwork will be held. The mural program, sponsored by the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, is a pilot project on which Brooks hopes to expand each year.
