Mural of the Story: McBee Shares Wall of Art

The community is invited to McBee Elementary School to celebrate a hand-painted 200-foot-long mural on school grounds. The mural is a joint project between local Austin artist Ethan Azarian and students from McBee. 

What: The celebration will begin with an introduction of the artist in the library. Following brief comments about the project, there will be a tour of the mural. Refreshments will be provided. 

When: 9 a.m. Monday, May 2

Where: McBee Elementary School library, 1101 W Braker Lane

This experience has provided a special opportunity for the student-artists and gave them a sense of ownership of the mural.  

This public work of art will be shared with community members as they drive or walk past the school's campus.

The mural project was initiated by Mary Rudig, editor of the North Austin Community Newsletter, and is supported and sponsored by North Austin Creates, Austin Creative Alliance and individual donors through Amplify Austin. Principal Maggie De La Rosa, librarian Heather Stephens, art teacher Megan Zaner and the students of McBee Elementary also dedicated a lot of time on the project.  

For more information, please contact the school at 512-841-2500 or artist Ethan Azarian at 512-271-1997.
