If you’ve driven by Lynn Gripon Park at Countryside lately you’ve probably noticed a new addition to League City's Public Art Scene. As part of recent renovations at the park, an interactive mural has been painted along the back of new concrete bleachers that were recently added to the park’s pavilion.
The mural, created by local artist Elizabeth Umanzor, features plants and wildlife that are native to the park—including birds, butterflies, a possum, a turtle, an armadillo, and even an alligator.
Elizabeth will soon be adding her creativity to a traffic utility box as part of League City’s mini mural program. Six more mini murals will be painted on traffic boxes this summer along League City Parkway and the intersections of Butler Road, Magnolia Meadows Lane, Bay Area Boulevard, Landing Boulevard, the I-45 feeder road, and the entrance to Kroger at Market 96.
This will bring the total number of murals on traffic boxes around the city to 26. For an interactive map of all the mini murals, visit here.
In addition, in the fall of 2023, amateur and professional artists of all ages in our community will be able to take part in a contest that will allow them to submit a mural design. If selected, the design will be digitally printed and wrapped on a signal box. Up to ten designs will be selected. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
