An unveiling event will be held at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 10, at the corner of 8th Street and Ave. F in Midlothian for a newly completed mural that now graces the city’s historic downtown. The mural depicts downtown 8th Street, circa 1920s, and is located on the side of 211 W. Avenue F (home of Rally Sportswear). It was commissioned by the Downtown Business Association and supported by a grant from the Midlothian Community Development Corporation. The 16-by-35-foot mural was painted over a 3.5 week period this summer by Kyle Wadsworth of Dallas who once lived in Midlothian as a youngster and has been painting murals throughout North Texas for 17 years.
