Mural part of Glenwood renaissance

The ribbon-cutting for the new mural was held in July at the corner of Glenwood Avenue and Grove Street.

Travis Hicks, CC-ED director, and design students in the Department of Interior Architecture worked with community volunteers and the Greater Glenwood Neighborhood Association to plan and complete the mural.

The project is one part of a wide-scale effort to revitalize Glenwood, one of Greensboro’s oldest planned communities. A diverse group of community volunteers, including kids, worked on the mural.
