EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – The City of El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department (MCAD) has announced the start of the mural replacement project on Geronimo Drive in Central El Paso.

Local Artist Mitsu Overstreet was selected to complete the expressive mural that is part of the Valley View Heights Neighborhood in Central El Paso. Mitsu is leading a team of local professional artists and emerging artists that will work on the mural starting September 6. According to the city, the mural should be finished sometime this fall.
