  1. I attended the 10am mural walk. It was great. It was enjoyable to slow down and really experience the mural art we have in Uptown. I pass by many of these each week and have never stopped to really appreciate them. They really do enhance our streets. Nice job Ginny Sykes and Uptown Walks. Thanks!
