There are 79 spaces artists can choose from at no cost. All they have to do is scan the QR code on the site and fill out a short form, then they can begin creating their piece of art.

Then each year, the walls will be repainted and the process will start again. Officials are hosting a ribbon-cutting for the Community Art Tunnel Friday at 2 p.m.
