Marcus Williams, a senior art major from Starkville, works to paint a new mural on a concrete retaining wall next to the university's Downtown Innovation Hub on Jackson Street. The project is the result of collaborations between the City of Starkville, Starkville Area Art Council and the MSU Department of Art. Titled "From City Hall to Lee Hall: We're in this Together," the mural depicts landmarks found in Starkville and on the MSU campus. The concept for the mural began in MSU art classes, and students will work on the project this summer. For additional photos of the mural progress, click here.
