Artists wanted in Temple, Texas!

The City of Temple is seeking additional artists to finish the mural leading to McLane Children’s Medical Center.

Like to draw, doodle, paint or just create art? This could be the perfect opportunity to do all of those things and do it for a great cause.

If you've driven by the McLane Children’s Medical Center in Temple you may have seen the Market Loop Mural - a train themed mural that's currently a work in progress along along Market Loop near the H-E-B on South 31st.


The City of Temple is asking for volunteers to help finish the mural, and the best part is that you don't have to be a trained painter to help out. You'll just need to adequately replicate the selected designs, which are available to view HERE.

The idea is to brighten the spirits of visitors to the children’s hospital. Nancy Glover, City of Temple Director of Housing and Community Development, says,

“Distraction is one of the best ways to help a child cope with necessary medical care the Market Loop Mural will play a key role in providing much needed distraction for children on their way to the hospital for treatment.”

Children visiting the hospital can oftentimes get nervous, and the mural can help take their mind off things. The same can be said for parents as well.

As you can see below, there are plenty of spots available for those looking to do some painting.


For those looking to get in involved, you can contact the Housing and Community Development Department at 254-298-5997 for artist applications and more information.
