Volunteers Ratnamala Deshmukh (left) and Jeremy Jarvis work Monday, Aug. 4, to paint a portion of the new 100-foot by 16-foot community mural on the storage sheds of Cellar Lumber, 137 E. College Ave., which run along the east side of the Westerville Bikeway just south of College.

The mural is a collaborative project among the city, the Franklin County Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Board and the art organization ALTernative. A "Community Paint Day" scheduled Aug. 2 to create the mural ran into problems with heavy midday rain and work on the giant mural continued early this week.
