The Rock Springs Main Street/Urban Renewal Agency has announced the first annual Downtown Mural Project Block Party and Unveiling.
Set for Thursday, August 10 at 6:00 p.m., the walking tour will begin at Pla Mor Lanes, 327 C Street, and wander through Downtown Rock Springs, viewing all of the downtown murals – both new and old. The community is invited to grab their walking shoes and join in. The tour will take roughly an hour and cover over one mile so those attending should plan accordingly. The tour will conclude at the Broadway Theater where refreshments and a look at plans for the next round of murals will be available.
“The response to the murals has been tremendous,” said Chad Banks, Rock Springs Main Stret/URA manager.
“We wanted to do something to showcase all of the public art downtown while thanking the community for their support of the project,” Banks added.
The Downtown Mural Project is a program of the Rock Springs Main Street/URA. Last fall, the program raised nearly $19,000 for downtown murals from private donors.
