Work is wrapping up on a new mural in downtown Fayetteville.

Los Angeles-based artist Bumblebee has completed painting the three-story-tall mural on the southwest corner of the Fayetteville Town Center parking garage, located at South Block Avenue and West Rock Street.

The project was approved in May when the Advertising and Promotion Commission signed off on a $25,000 contract with Bentonville-based Monument Studio LLC (aka Fellow Human Gallery) to facilitate the mural.

Bumblebee’s work has been featured in galleries and exhibitions across the United States, as well as in Asia and Europe. Some of his high-profile murals can be found at Google headquarters in Venice Beach, Calif., and at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.
