Marketing and Communications - April 9, 2018

Through the city’s social media accounts, interested citizens can watch as the giant mural of an American river otter is painted on the Sides Road Water Tank.

A time-lapse video of progress the previous work day will be posted by 10 a.m. Mondays through Fridays on the city's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. A camera has been set up to record work on the mural Mondays through Fridays. The video will be compressed to 60 seconds or less before it is posted.

Links to all three accounts are posted at the top of the city's home page at CityofWS.org. 

The mural was commissioned by the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Public Art Commission. Daas, an American artist based in Japan, is painting a 50-foot tall, 270-foot wide, stylized depiction of an American river otter, a species found in Forsyth County along the Yadkin River. The mural will be visible from the heavily traveled Peters Creek Parkway corridor.
