Concord residents had some fun Saturday morning painting a mural outside Arnie’s Place that depicts the Heights neighborhood.

Karen Kelly, facilitator of the project who has experience in community mural projects around the world, felt it was time for an art project on the Heights.

“The Public Art Group has been looking at public art and they were well aware that they really needed to bring some of the funds that come in for the arts,” she said. “They wanted to bring it to the Heights cause most of the funds usually stay downtown.”

The group spent the morning painting off of a sketch and pencil outline onto the final canvas.

“It’s been a fabulous process,” Kelly added.

The project is supported by the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce’s Creative Concord Committee and a grant from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.
