During the construction of the San Marcos Shared-Use Path Trail Project, a significant amount of graffiti was discovered underneath the Cheatham Street bridge. In order to remedy this issue, Community Enhancement Initiatives Manager Amy Thomaides and Innovation Manager Charlotte Wattigny designed the Kaleidoscope No. 19 mural to be painted on the underside of the bridge. The name is a nod to the 19 separate colors used within the mural.
