Funding and planning takes almost two years to come together, but organizers say it's well worth the wait.

"One of those things that brings life to the community, gets people out helps people identify with the community, gets them excited about what's going on and has a life of it's own," said co-coordinator Brand Venable.

Co-coordinator Nacy Nichols-Pethick added:  "I think they are beautiful. I think there is nothing wrong with having something to look at on the walls of our city. I think it gives people something to think about and something to talk about, and that's always a good thing."
