Local artist to paint downtown mural

CHAMPAIGN — A local artist plans to paint a mural in the heart of downtown Champaign.

Urbana graphic designer David Michael Moore is creating the mural, which will feature Visit Champaign County's slogan "Outside of Ordinary" and various local landmarks, including the State Farm Center, Krannert Center, Art Theater and food trucks.

It will be on the wall of the Visit Champaign County building at 17 E. Taylor St., across from the Blind Pig beer garden.

"Get ready for all those amazing Instagram-able moments," said Terri Reifsteck, Visit Champaign County's vice president of marketing. "Stay tuned for this mural coming later this summer."

Visit Champaign County unveiled the mural design Wednesday at its sixth annual Toast to Tourism event.
