More than 500 Wichita Falls residents participated in the creation of the mural. Ms. Gaines specializes in designing and creating large works in ceramic, paint and mosaic and has organized a number of collaborative murals in the Midwest as well, most notably in Alton, IL, Palos Heights, IL , and most recently with students from Jay Stream Middle School in Carol Stream, IL. At the lecture, Ms. Gaines will have Texas related images she has created since the mural. Light refreshments will be served beginning at 12:30 before the presentation.
