Sixteenth Street Community Health Center mural unveiled

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A generous splash of color and creativity is now brightening a south side Milwaukee neighborhood.

The mural was unveiled on Thursday.

It covers one wall of the Sixteenth Street Community Health Center on Cesar Chavez Drive and Washington Street.

It celebrates the clinics 50 years of service and the artist says it represents the relationship between the clinic and its neighborhood.

"Something like this goes up in the community, I think it's the ultimate signal of how community business members show how they really want to take care of the community," said Mauricio Ramirez, Mural Artist.

Health Center staff members helped create the design for the mural and some of them helped paint it as well.
