TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

 East Texas artists have the chance to display their creativity on a building in Downtown Tyler.

Strada Caffe is donating one of the business' exterior walls for a mural contest.

The blank canvas for the future mural is their drive-through wall along the north side of the shop.

The contest winner will be awarded $1,000 upon completion of the mural.

Organizers say it's all to bring more art and people into Downtown Tyler.

"It gives people something to look forward to when they come to downtown,” said Joe Matthews, manager of Strada Caffe. “There are great events, great businesses. It’s something that has been growing and we want to be a part of that growth. It’s exciting to have people enter and it's just something fun."

Artists are encouraged to submit concepts that are unique, energetic, family-friendly, and add to the culture of downtown.
