New mural in Corpus Christi welcomes everyone to downtown area

The mural took Cameron Walls, a Corpus Christi native, several months of planning before paint started going up in August.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The newest mural in downtown Corpus Christi was unveiled Friday morning by the Downtown Management District. 

The mural, which resembles a giant, artistic postcard, took Cameron Walls, a Corpus Christi native, several months of planning before paint started going up in August. It sits at the corner of Chaparral Street and Peoples Street. 

“It was an honor to be able to create this mural and leave my mark in Downtown Corpus Christi,” said Walls. “When you come out to view the work, be sure to look for the fun print I hid within the mural.” 

The unveiling was attended by Mayor Paulette Guajardo and several other local leaders. 

“At the DMD, we are integrating public art into our development and fostering opportunities for the local art community to shine,” said Alyssa Barrera Mason, Executive Director. “We are thankful to have the support from Mayor Paulette Guajardo and City Council, who recognize the value of our local art community.”

The mural captures the DMD's vision on becoming the most vibrant downtown on the Gulf of Mexico.
