Project made Possible by Project Inspire: Mural Arts Program and the City of San Antonio Office of Cultural Affairs Community Arts Access Program
San Antonio, TX (December 10, 2012) – In celebration of 110 years of service a three-story original mural is to be unveiled Monday, Dec. 10, at 2 p.m. at the 702 San Pedro Avenue headquarters of San Antonio-based Family Service, which begins a year-long 110 anniversary celebration with its community partners, volunteers, sponsors and the families they serve across South Texas.
The completed outdoor mural project is located on the north wall of Family Service’s headquarters at 702 San Pedro Avenue facing the intersection of San Pedro and Cypress. The project was made possible through Project Inspire: Mural Arts Program and the City of San Antonio Office of Cultural Affairs Community Arts Access Program.
The life-like vivid colored multi-storied mural depicts how Family Service has serviced San Antonio families throughout the years, past and present. Family Service Youth Against Gang Activity volunteers and NuStar Energy LP volunteers partnered with Family Service and artist David Blancas to make the vision a reality.
“The mural project truly illustrates what the Family Service is about,” says Nancy Hard, Family Service CEO. “It shows the dedicated, caring service that Family Service has provided and will continue to provide to the San Antonio community for years to come.”
Family Service is one of San Antonio’s leading non-profit organizations dedicated to protecting and strengthening our city’s most vulnerable, children, families and seniors against abuse, drugs, poverty and despair. More than 70,000 families were helped last year.
