TEMPLE, Texas — The city of Temple is calling on all artists to send in submissions for the Market Loop Mural project.

The mural will be train-themed and is planned for a concrete wall along Market Loop with the goal of brightening the spirits of visitors heading to the hospital.

“Distraction is one of the best ways to help a child cope with necessary medical care,” said Nancy Glover, Temple's director of housing and community development. “The Market Loop Mural will play a key role in providing much-needed distraction for children on their way to the hospital for treatment.”

Those who are interested can visit to print off one of 12 design templates. The designs can then be submitted by email to or mailed to 101 North Main Street, Temple, TX 76501.

Submissions will be accepted through Aug. 31 and the chosen submissions will be announced on Sept. 7.
