After the first layer of paint dried, volunteers used bubble wrap dipped in different shades of color to add texture to the mural.

Volunteers agreed that the bright colors of the mural will brighten the front of the brewery and create a beautiful piece of art for people driving by to see.

Volunteers were given t-shirts with the outline of the mural's design printed on the back, which they could reference to find the right color for each numbered portion of the mural.

Alex Vagonis, one of the volunteers last Sunday, said the mural's design will make Starr Hill, an already welcoming place, seem even more welcoming.
