New mural coming to Caroline Street
A blank white fence at 823 Caroline Street in Downtown Fredericksburg will soon be adorned with five paintings done by a group of local students.
Late last year, about 15 students in kindergarten through fifth grade working in two different groups at Art Time for Kids created the paintings for an exhibit to be called “Fredericksburg: Past, Present, Future, Strong.”
Claire Ellinger, who owns the business at 101 Hanover Street, said she approached the owner of the white fence, Jim Nikitakis, about hanging the panels there, and he graciously agreed. Ellinger plans to spruce up the fence in the coming week and then hang the paintings. Handymen interested in volunteering can contact Ellinger through the Art Time for Kids website.
A sneak peek of what it will look like can be found on the Art Time for Kids Facebook page.
We look forward to seeing this great addition to downtown take shape!
