Today, Huntsville leaders celebrated a new work of art in Downtown Huntsville.
The galactic mural now sits on the side of an office building on the corner of Holmes Avenue and Washington Street. The space-theme was inspired by the Rocket City.
Artist Jessie Andrews painted the wall in four days and added the final planet to it today. She says it took a year to come up with the idea, make the planets, and put it all together.
“It was very drawn out at first. A lot of time was just like manifesting the idea. A lot of period was just researching and experimenting, and then, it was just like a short amount of physical labor just kind of concentrated all into a few days,” said Andrews.
The mural is part of the city’s push to add art in public spaces downtown.
