The old Foster's Department store, currently known as the Halcyon Building, recently received a very unique makeover.

This refreshing burst of color and sparkle was designed by two art students at Mathews High School.

Our "downtown" has been rather lackluster for many years.  We don't handle change very well, as a rule.

Personally, I am thrilled with this piece of art.

Up close, it gets even more exciting.  The mural is made up of thousands of pieces of broken tile, glass and other objects--including oyster shells.

Even better is that it's not just one-dimensional.  Some pieces jut off the side of the building.

I think it's stunning.  

Have a wonderful weekend.
