TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Two fifth-grade students from St. Gregory Cathedral School now have their art featured on the City of Tyler new art wall at Hillside Park.

Maya Ranido, 11, and Allison Harrell, 11, unveiled their murals at the park Monday morning.

Allison’s mural is on Panel 1 and Maya’s mural is on Panel 5. The murals are part of a project by Keep Tyler Beautiful, which is giving artists an opportunity to feature some of their work on the art wall as part of renovations at Hillside Park.

The art wall is made up of 20 concrete slates. City officials plan to choose different pieces of art to feature throughout the year, meaning artists who were not chosen during the first round of selections are encouraged to continue applying.
