A reception will take place Friday evening for some talented artists who are still in grade school.
Fourth through sixth grade students are celebrating their parts in the StoryLine Project at CitySpace in downtown Charlottesville. It's a summer program by Charlottesville Parks and Recreation that takes the kids on walking expeditions to inspire them to make a mural on the Free Speech Wall.
Some of the parents never got to see the mural when it went up in July, and they're getting their first look at it Friday.
Greg Kelly with the StoryLine Project said, "It's an opportunity for them to come out and celebrate the efforts of the kids and all the groups that are involved with the program each year, and just for it to be in place for the community as a whole."
The reception is free and open to the public. It starts at 5:30 p.m. and runs until 7:30 p.m.
