SHS Art Teacher Awarded Grant for Downtown Springdale Mural

NWA Daily

The Downtown Springdale Alliance has selected Springdale High School art teacher, Mary Beth Breshears, as one of four grant recipients selected to create murals in downtown Springdale.

  • The program, made possible by a grant from the Walton Family Foundation, is designed to enhance the downtown’s aesthetics and engage local artists by highlighting local building facades.
  • In partnership with SHS, Mary Beth Breshears represents the Teen Action & Support Center (TASC) and the Jones Center. Breshear's vision is to draw a message of healing, strength, renewal and community, inspired by the Marshallese community, friends, and neighbors.
  • SHS's mural proposal was one of four accepted among thirty-three artists and eight property owners. The murals are slated to be completed on or before April 15, 2021.
