Public invited to view murals in Iowa City

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) - As part of the City of Iowa City's Public Art Program, three murals have been painted on public structures in the city.

A meet and greet will be held Sunday, Oct. 12 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. for people to stop by any of the murals, meet the artists and learn more about the creative process.

"Underwater Scene" by Taylor Ross is located on the west wall of the pump building, adjacent to the Fair Meadows Park splash pad located at 2500 Miami Dr. The water-themed art features dolphins, a mermaid, stone pillars and flowering plants.

"Whole" by Brock Muench is located on the support wall beneath the College St. Bridge. Due to its close proximity to the Iowa City Farmers Market, this wall has a food, gardening and environment theme.

"Step Up" by Jesa Townsend depicts children working together to reach a goal of painting the higher level of the mural. It's located on the east wall of the old pool building at Mercer Park located at 2701 Bradford St.

The meet and greets are free, and open to the public.
