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 templetx.gov/mural to print off one of 12 design templates. The designs can then be submitted by email to email@example.com 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.
