There is a new “skyscraper*” under construction in downtown Jackson. Before construction began, a project was sent out to various schools, create a mural that captures the essence of Jackson, and it shall be hung on the construction wall. The murals themselves were lovely, they were very creative, others were really abstract… but I was impressed nonetheless. This one submitted by Jackson Prep was definitely my favorite, it really does capture the essence of downtown, all of the potential… however I thought it was odd to see the King Edward in the art, but with its new revitalization underway… perhaps soon it will be as bustling as this mural.
*For most of the world a skyscraper is a really large building that seems to scrape the sky. For Jackson it is any large building above two stories.
