Talent is the second city in the U.S. to be named a Bee City USA back in 2014.
In order to honor the title, local artist Karen Rycheck was joined by over 100 people to create the first community mural in the city.
“I really enjoy doing community projects and bringing people together using art as a medium,” Mosaic designer and facilitator, Karen Rycheck, said.
The mosaic is located in a grassy area between Talent City Hall and the library.
On Saturday from 10 A.M. to 12 P.M., they’ll be hosting an unveiling party at the Talent Commons with food, live music, and games.
