Cox and her shadow

  • Cox and her shadow

V.L. Cox took time out after completing a mural on a wall on the River Trail in North Little Rock near the Skate Park to do a little goofing for the camera, which she shared on Facebook. The mural, she writes on the blog jbarcycling, was supported by NLR Mayor Pat Hays after she told him about her her mural project with incarcerated kids at the Alexander Juvenile Assessment Treatment Center, a job she found inspirational. Cox hopes to do more murals, getting teen-agers to pitch in as a community-building exercise. Will the wall get tagged? Cox says she kept the River Trail design simple in anticipation of that, but she’s hoping that graffiti artists will leave the wall be. Or may be they’ll add to, instead of paint over, the design?
