The first mural is being painted on H and Inyo across from Chukchansi Park.

It's expected to be complete by Sunday night, and the second one, featuring an image of George Floyd, is scheduled to get underway on Tuesday.

Organizers say once all six are complete, people will be able to go on a mural tour around Downtown Fresno to look at all the new artwork.
