Downtown Plano Mural Project
The Downtown Plano Arts District launched the Downtown Mural Project in 2017 in partnership with the Plano Art Association. The goal was to use visual art to celebrate Plano’s history. Residents submitted their own historical photos of Plano to be used in the design of the murals.

The second mural on the wall of the restaurant Vickery Park is a streetscape depicting commerce in Plano at the turn of the 20th century. It was heavily inspired by the photos submitted by Plano residents for the project. The mural displays a scene from historic Plano with citizens strolling through downtown. The famous Texas Electric Railway interurban railcar is featured, as well as the storefronts of Downtown Plano buildings. Artist Wes Hardin has over 37 years of experience as a muralist and illustrator.
