The summer's heat made things take longer than expected-- and they had to paint at night because the paint would dry too quickly.

Mural artist Paul Jackson said the mural pays tribute to the area. Jackson is the lead artist.

"There's a lot to take in, the mural has lots of different topics all rolled into one major theme," Jackson said. "The title is, River Dreams and it's inspired by many float trip down the Current River, the Black River, St. Francis and rivers in general, I guess we like to float."

Nearly 50 people helped with the mural which should be finished within the week.
