The newly formed advisory board at W.E. Greiner Exploratory Arts Academy, Friends of Greiner, worked with the City of Dallas Graffiti Outreach Program to create a new mural for the school this past week.

The mural is above the entry to the school’s Stevie Ray Vaughan auditorium and depicts the blues musician, who was a student at Greiner and grew up nearby.

“We believe that using graffiti for the mural will appeal to the creative mindset of the middle school students and evoke a sense of pride and belonging in the school,” says Friends of Greiner co-founder Rebecca Ordinario.
