Project Overview

America's Muralist Raine Clotfelter and his crew will be in Aurora for a month this spring working on a special "All Roads Lead Home Mural" project. This colorful creation will be placed on the north wall of Children's Smile Center, a nonprofit dental facility for children, just south of the square at Madison and Church.

The project is being made possible through a Placeworks grant, local donations and support from the Community Foundation of the Ozarks and the Aurora Area Community Foundation. The project is being promoted by the Aurora High School Youth Empowerment Project, the AHS Leadership Class and A-Tech Class taught by Kim McCully-Mobley and the Houn' Dawg Alumni & Outreach Center.

This sense-of-place project is an intergenerational project designed to promote and celebrate the arts, culture, history, education and community spirit.
