From June 14's Charleston Gazette:

If you’re wondering about the murals hanging on the city parking garage near the South Side Bridge, they are the work of local schoolchildren taking part in the FestivALL Drop Cloth Mural Project.

Parton Sign installed the mural from Weberwood Elementary on Friday. The final mural — from George C. Weimer Elementary — will go up on Monday.

Others taking part are: Sissonville High; Nitro High; Dunbar Middle; Sissonville Middle; and the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club.

The kids were given the task of presenting murals illustrating “What I Like About Charleston.” The project is a partnership of the Charleston Area Alliance, Kanawha County Schools, the state Department of Education, City of Charleston and Home Depot.
