HOUSTON – A mural to honor some of the heroes who helped during Hurricane Harvey is being painted in the Westchase District.
The painting along Brays Bayou is a combination of spray and hand painting and is a tribute to the volunteers and first responders who helped rescue Houstonians during Harvey.
Larry Crawford is the artist working on the mural. When it is complete, the 100-by-20-foot mural will depict first responders and the Cajun Navy with a message that says "Thank You Houston Heroes."
"It really is a tribute to the effort and help by the ordinary people who came to help the people in need. It was a tough time but also allowed people to put aside their differences and help," Crawford said.
Clyde Cain, the founder of the Cajun Navy, said the mural is a powerful reminder.
"We all came together. For someone to paint this is incredible," he said.
Crawford said the mural will be completed in the next two to three weeks.
