The mural was developed by artist, Darlene Taylor, and internet service provider, Kinetic by Windstream, to celebrate the unique places and aspects of Texarkana. Numerous murals are being developed around the country by Kinetic. The projects showcase Kinetics’ commitment to small towns like Texarkana, which often are left behind when it comes to high-speed internet access.
