The City of San Marcos dedicated a new mural by Washington artist Jake Wagoner on Sessom Drive on Tuesday, July 2.

The mural, titled “Life in Color,” illustrates the wildlife of the Edwards Aquifer and encourages people to be good stewards of its delicate ecosystem.

“During the six years I have been with the City I’ve seen this wall constantly tagged, requiring our staff to spend time and resources to paint over the graffiti,” said Community Enhancement Initiatives Manager Amy Kirwin. “This mural is an amazing piece of art that beautifies our community and frees City resources for work on other issues.”

ABOUT THE MURAL ARTS PROGRAM: The City of San Marcos Mural Arts Program commissions murals and provides grants and design assistance to artists in an effort to prevent graffiti and beautify the community.
