The inside of the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center will be a little more colorful, thanks to a new mural that's going up. It also will serve as a memorial and honor those that served our country.
Two art alley artists are working on this expansive mural that's in the East Concourse of the Civic Center. The mural will have the names of 6500 soldiers who sacrificed their lives for our country. Those involved with the project say it's important.
"We think it's a great opportunity to showcase local art and it's a great way with Ellsworth Air Force base here to thank them for all of their hard work," said Priscilla Dominguez of the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center.
"What we're trying to do is let people know that there are still troops over seas that our fighting for our freedom," said Aaron Pearcy, one of the artists painting a mural.
People can come and watch the artists work on the mural. It will be finished by Memorial Day and it will be up until July.
