WILD MURAL1

Artists Chris Stephens and Melissa Ichiuji put the finishing touches on this mural at the corner of Cloud and Main streets in Front Royal on Wednesday. The mural, which took eight days to complete, encompasses 2,100 square foot on the building’s east side and is the home of Ichiuji’s art studio. The building’s storefront is being remodeled to open as an art gallery for Ichiuji’s sculptures and for visiting artists next year.
