When we got word of the new artwork going up in downtown temple so we decided to go take a look. Looks pretty great, doesn't it?

The new mural is part of an ongoing project to beautify select places downtown. The MLK mural is near 4th Street and E.Central next to the Arcadia Theater.

Its made of recyclable aluminum which makes the colors really stand out. Downtown Development coordination Sherri Street said she hopes it's the first of many murals to decorate downtown. Street's office put out a press release naming Centex resident Charles Wallis as the murals creator.

Discover Downtown says they are committed to providing meaningful public art to downtown Temple. They plan to show off the new art work with an "Up your Alley Artwalk" coming soon.
