City of San Marcos to Dedicate Latest Mural April 26

 

Mural Dedication The City of San Marcos will dedicate a new mural Wednesday, April 26 at 9:30 a.m. The newest artwork, located at 135 S. Guadalupe Street, is part of the San Marcos Mural Arts Program.

“Life is Tough but So Are You” by Austin Artist Becca Gordon was completed in February. It is the latest addition to the City’s mural initiative, which helps deter graffiti and brings public art to the residents and visitors of San Marcos.

“In my murals I bring together abstracted brushstrokes as well as other traditionally painterly elements with graphic details,” said Gordon. “For this piece I combined the colorful traditions of pop art with the precision of graphic design to create a vibrant and joyful mural that I hope will be enjoyed for years to come.”

Members of the public are invited to join the brief dedication ceremony. Photos with the colorful mural are encouraged.

About the San Marcos Mural Arts Program: the San Marcos Mural Arts Program is a City initiative that brings murals in a variety of art styles and artist backgrounds to San Marcos while deterring graffiti in our community’s public spaces. It is a public art program of the San Marcos Arts Commission.
