The "City Of Murals" is getting another mural; this one is the 2nd for the Silver City Library. One of the remarkable things about the murals here is that all the tiles are made by the young people whether it be the YCC Mural Crew, the annual Mural Summer Camp, as in this mural or students at every school in the county as in the hands seen so prominent in the parks.

Just to the right of this group on the corner of the wall leading to the front door of the library are the first tiles to go up as seen in the image below. The full length of the wall going off to the left towards College Street is covered with mosaic tile images

Some images at the end of the wall closest to College St; the white vertical line is tape used to stabilize the peace until the Thin Set drys enough to hold the tile(s).

In this shot and the one above we can see some black lines drawn on the wall for the next round of tiles that fill in between the images and also created by the campers and interns or other young people as part of other mural projects.
