New mural brings some color to Lexington street

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT)- A Lexington street looks a little more colorful Wednesday night.

City leaders and children from the "West End Community Empowerment Project," unveiled a new mural along with Georgetown Street.

The mural features positive messages and designs.

City leaders, including council member, Shevawn Akers, say the project is a way to make the neighborhood a little better.

"With the power of public art, neighborhoods change form, and take pride in their communities once again, and respect the art, and don't graffiti it, and that sort of thing," she said.

The mural is located on the side of the Share Center, which is an advocacy center for social justice.
