The new Thomas Place mural will depict activities at the community center, with a decidedly Fort Worth twist.

Thomas Place Community Center will soon be the site of the newest mural by Fort Worth artist Katie Murray, and the community is invited to participate in creating this work of art.

The mural, which will measure almost 30 feet long and 10 feet high, will be painted on a wall inside the community center. It depicts a variety of recreational activities offered at the center, in addition to several elements that give the work a specifically Fort Worth feel — like representations of tubing on the Trinity River, the bricks along Camp Bowie Boulevard and the Stockyards’ famous longhorn herd.

This work will be the latest in Murray’s list of high-profile community mural projects. Examples of her other work graces buildings in the Camp Bowie area (Dream on Dreamer, located at 5702 Locke St.) and around Magnolia Avenue (Don’t Quit Your Daydream, located at 200 Carroll St.)

Get involved

Community members will be painting the mural from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Jan. 13 and Jan. 14. The design is already sketched onto the wall, and participants will be filling in the color, paint-by-number style.

Registration for painting spots have been filled, but the public is still invited to attend as spectators. Those who would like to attend can visit the center’s event page on Facebook to RSVP.
