Riverbend Mural

The Union Street mural is almost complete - just in need of some finishing touches. It was designed by seventh-graders Gabrielle Stauffer and Ivy McWherter as part of a sixth-grade art class with teacher Chelsie Meyer.

If you get a chance sometime soon, you really should take the time to make a trip down Union Street. The river out along River Road is beautiful, and the Boat Club is a wonderful place to stop and take in the surroundings, but it’s not so much the destination that deserves your attention – it’s the journey.

Along Union Street, near the River Street intersection north of Edgewood, a formerly forgettable concrete retaining wall has been transformed into the Scenic City’s newest public art. And it’s all thanks to some imagination, community support, paint and volunteer work.
