McALESTER — Southeastern Oklahoma Fine Art Inc. is painting a mural on a building owned by Dr. Bob Bartheld.

The building is on the corner of Second and Choctaw streets and the mural will be painted on the east side.

“Our thanks to them for allowing us to paint on their building,” said project manager Anita Jackson.

The mural will be 80 feet long by 15 feet high. It is a trompe L’oeil scene which means it is painted to trick the eye into thinking it is real.

For more information contact Jackson at 918-423-7378.
