El Paso Artists Terry Wright and Katie Gelinas will create two mosaic tile murals at the center that highlight the mountains surrounding El Paso with a jackrabbit and a hummingbird among cacti.
The tiles that will be used in parts of the mosaic will be painted at the center during workshops that will be scheduled at a later time.
The art piece will be installed as part of an improvement project at the Senior Center that was funded through the 2012 Quality of Life Bonds.
