Downtown Mural

The City of Amarillo Facilities Building is featuring a new mural showing off the areas agricultural history and water conservation.

The mural is a coordination between Texas Runs On Water, The Panhandle Groundwater Conservation District, the city and Blank Spaces.

The new mural is right next to the Hodgetown Stadium, and it pays homage to the farming, ranching, and agricultural industries that are important to the region.

Blank Spaces is a local nonprofit which offers internships and members have painted a lot of murals in the area.

The project manager for the organization says the internships teach high school students workforce skills while also giving back to the community.

An official celebration took place on Wednesday, July 14th at 8th and Johnson Streets.
