COLUMBIA — Painters got to work Monday at the Columbia Academy of Music on a blues-inspired mural. The mural was designed by Artlandish Gallery owner Lisa Bartlett and interns from the gallery helped paint it on the 40-by-20 wall. Community members can help paint the wall from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 7. The Columbia Academy of Music is located at 1020 E. Walnut St.

Paint supplies and a rendered drawing of a blues-inspired mural lay on the scaffolding of the Columbia Academy of Music, where on Monday volunteers copied the illustrations to the exterior of the building located at 1020 East Walnut St. The mural design incorporates illustrations from Columbia elementary students who participated in the Blues in the Schools program —a music education program that celebrates appreciation for blues music and history.
