LAMPASAS (July 4, 2012)-Vision Lampasas is bringing art to life with two new murals to adorn two buildings in the city.
Some residents believe the timing could not be better, after vandals trashed several pieces of art last month at the Hanna Springs Sculpture Garden.
"Wildflowers of Lampasas County," one of the murals, will feature a variety of seed packets to include all native flowers.
Both murals are to be created on buildings on East Fourth Street.
Currently, the building for the wildflower mural is up for sale, so it is unknown if the mural will be removed or kept once it sells.
The mural will be painted by volunteers from the community and will include a QR code to allow Smartphone users the option to receive more information on the mural, and other projects.
Passersby will only need to scan the mural with their phone to get access to the information.
"Hunting & Fishing in Lampasas, Texas," another mural, will appear on the Home Place Floors building.
The mural will depict a buck, doe and realistic game stamps issued by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Services.
The completion of the project is expected to coincide with deer hunting season this winter.
The wildflower project should be completed by the fall.
The murals have been paid for through fundraiser efforts of community members and additional murals are currently being planned.
