Area students are getting creative and beautifying the community. Members of Quad City Arts' Metro Arts program are creating a one thousand square foot mural spanning both sides of the Harrison Street viaduct. 
     
The art project is titled "Create Your Sanctuary" and it's inspired by the search for creativity in diversity. Students worked with city representatives to choose the design. 
     
Organizers say the students benefit from working through the creative process while being exposed to the professional atmosphere associated with the arts program. 

"They get that professional side, where they go through the process of creating the design, going through the review committee, being chosen or not chosen, that reality of being an adult," Quad City Arts Metro Art's Sarah Robb said. "We always don't get what we want out of a project. But then the satisfaction in the end of completing something you started."

The project will take five weeks to complete and the drawing process will begin today or tomorrow.
     
If you're driving past the bridge, make sure to keep your eyes out for progress.
