212 E. Main Street
It was a beautiful day in Barstow. At 8am the pre-prepped mural wall already
looked spectacular as Master Artist Kathy Fierro had been working overtime
to make sure the lines were clear for community muralists during the week before.
We had about 20 people from the community help paint the wall throughout the day,
with others stopping by to see what was going on.The mural was finally completed
about 6:30pm and was cast in shadows from the setting sun.
The completed mural at 212 E/ Main Street (site of Desert Stationers). The community muralists signed their names below the mural. A list of mural sponsors (donated $200 or more) will be installed adjacent to the murals in the next few weeks.
