Harvey Heroes Mural to be unveiled August 16

Work celebrates first responders

It was nearly one year ago, that Hurricane Harvey dumped 52 inches of rain across Houston, bringing widespread devastation to the area. As many people continue to deal with the after-effects of the storm, Westchase District is paying tribute to those who responded immediately to the disaster…in the form of art.

Mural artist Larry Crawford is putting the finishing touches on his 100-foot wide by 20-foot tall mural designed as a tribute to Hurricane Harvey rescuers.

Westchase District will formally dedicate the mural at 11 a.m. on Thursday, August 16.

The mural is located on a concrete slope where the Brays Bayou Connector Trail intersects with the Wilcrest Connector Trail, just north of the Westpark Tollway. Parking for the event will be available at the nearby METRO Westchase Park & Ride location, 11050 Harwin Drive.

Representatives from police and fire agencies and members of the Louisiana Cajun Navy are expected to attend. All are welcome to join the festivities as Westchase District celebrates all the good that exists in Houston, especially in times of crisis.
