This mural was sponsored by Christ Church Austin and Hope Chapel. It was painted in the parking lot of a 6th street restaurant during the week of SXSW in Austin TX. We had a lot of interaction with the folks passing by. The theme is Jesus touching people and their being healed. There are ten or so different scenes from the scriptures where Jesus is healing various ailments and sickness. The border was left blank and we let passers by come up and paint a section of the border as a way to encourage participation. Here is a web site that chronicles the project and here is an article that Word Magazine published about it.
