Dedication ceremony set for South Dakota neighborhood mural

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A dedication ceremony is planned for a mural that was painted by residents in 1 of the oldest neighborhoods in Sioux Falls.

The artwork in Meldrum Park of the city's Whittier Middle School neighborhood was the brainchild of 1 of the school's social studies teachers, Lela Himmerich, who wanted to help spruce up the park and show off the area's diversity. Her students offered suggestions.

More than two-dozen people worked on the concept. The design was prepared by lead artist Dave Lowenstein and assistants Ashley Laird and Nate Buchholz.

The event is scheduled at 6 p.m. Wednesday.
