New mural completed in downtown Myrtle Beach

Grand Strand

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) – A new mural has been unveiled in downtown Myrtle Beach.

The Leadership Grand Strand Group painted the mural next to the Gay Dolphin gift shopt.

News13 asked how the group was able to complete the project.

The problem with it was you had to have adults, 25 of us trying to paint,” said Becky Boone. “So the design had to be something in which everybody could participate.

“So as we lovingly say it was a paint-by-numbers scenario. So, I did the design, we mapped it out and then all the members came in and helped paint it,” Boone said.

This project was made possible thanks to the generosity of South Atlantic Bank and Bank of America.
