Artwork along Trenton Street seawall

The call is out for volunteer painters for the West Monroe seawall project Saturday.

Emery Thibodeaux, one of the "One Mile Of Love" project organizers, says the wall featuring local student artwork is in the last stages of completion.  "We have about 18 or 20 panels to do.  We have all the drawings projected.  Hopefully, we'll cover a lot of ground and wrap up in a couple weeks."

The student's paintings are replicated along the seawall on Trenton Street.  Thibodeaux says the project has created pride among the talented young people.  "They're so excited.  It has given them a sense of empowerment in the community by working together," she said.

The Community Paint Day is Saturday from 7 a.m. - 12 p.m.
