The Arts Commission's Young Artists at Work program, which runs through Aug. 12, is developing murals for St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center and Flatlanders Sculpture and Supply. The St. Vincent commission carries the theme "A Proud Past, a Promising Future" as part of the celebration of the hospital's 150th anniversary. The Flatlanders project, "The Earth Experiment," has been commissioned by gallery owner Ken Thompson.

The mural projects are under the instruction of Andres Orlowski, assisted by Adam Russell and Keturah A.N. Bobo.
