"Sherman Park Rising" mural now on display near 47th and Center

Milwaukee, WIS. (CBS 58) -- A ceremony was held Friday for a mural called "Sherman Park Rising."

Designer Tia Richardson says it represents "many voices combined into one." While Richardson was brought in to design the mural, she had plenty of input from neighbors at community meetings. 

"The whole idea from the start was community participation, so I didn't expect the level of participation that I had, but a project like this, its power comes from people interested in it," said Tia Richardson.

The actual painting was done not only by Richardson but by hundreds of volunteers from the community even Mayor Tom Barrett helped out.
