local organization, were capturing pictures of the very last details being placed on the new mural at the corner of Newton Street and 6th Street, that was being finished by Michael Smith a mural artist from Orange Moon Art Studio out of Evansville.
Mr. Wehr explains on what sort of impact this mural can create for the city of Jasper.
