Students, staff, parents and community members joined Williams Paca Elementary School in completing its mural installation project, which was made possible through the “Mural In A Day” contest, a Prince George’s County Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative.

“We are so happy to have the mural installed at our school,” said Dorthy Clowers, Principal at William Paca Elementary School. “The mural does a great job of showing the William Paca Community and will continue to be a positive source for our school even after I retire.”

The “Mural In A Day” contest was coordinated through the Prince George’s County “Art in Public Places” program and partnered with CBS Radio/WPGC 95.5 FM, to raise awareness about the County’s Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative through public art.

Jose Piedra, winning artist and resident of Prince George’s County, was excited to have the mural installed at the schools grounds.

“It was great seeing the kids complete the mural,” said Piedra. “The students will now see their hard work everyday when they come to school, which promotes a healthy living lifestyle.”

The contest production and installation of the mural was also sponsored and underwritten by Prince George’s Community Federal Credit Union and the Prince George’s County Health Department.
