A huge new mural is going up in Selma — to welcome visitors — and highlight the city’s history.
The mural is a community art project sponsored by the city of Selma — ArtsRevive — the Links, Inc — and Selma City Schools.
Selma school students are in the process of painting a giant mural — on a the side of the Selma Welcome Center — downtown.
Students have been working on the project — since January.
The massive mural will greet the visitors and tourists who come to town.
It highlights the city’s designation as — the Butterfly Capital of Alabama — in addition to the city’s rich history.
“You look up and you see the history of Selma from 1820 to the present,” said Wooten.
A public unveiling of the mural — is set for May 19th.
The project was funded by a grant from the State Council on the Arts.
