If you’ve seen a recent increase in vibrant colors, you might have caught a sneak-peak of upcoming Downtown Corpus Christi Mural Festival. The Corpus Christi Downtown Management District is eager for the kickoff of the Mural Festival, taking place June 3rd from 5:30PM to 9:00PM and June 4th from 3:00PM to 7:00PM. The festival is just one way to embrace the vibrancy of Corpus Christi through art.

The event will take place on select streets of Downtown Corpus Christi, with hand-selected artists inspired to depict what makes Corpus Christi so special. “The vision of the event is to celebrate the history and culture of our city and enhance the visuals in the Marina Arts District through large-scale murals.  The muralists were inspired to showcase different aspects of Corpus Christi including the beach, the new Harbor Bridge, local pets, the Naval Air Station, and tropical plants adding to the vibrancy of downtown and our wayfinding initiatives,” states Alyssa B Mason, CCDMD’s Executive Director.
