CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - Two artists are bringing more waves to a South Texas city along the Gulf of Mexico in the form of a large new mural.

The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports that Corpus Christi artists John Olvey and Kaleigh Glover recently unveiled their mural "City by the Sea" along the side of the Corpus Christi Trade Center. The pair spent eight days working on the 200-foot (61-meter) outdoor artwork, which features beach scenery with crashing waves and palm trees.

Olvey is a former national surfing champion who currently works in a variety of artistic mediums. Glover created The Art Project CC, where she helps businesses decorate with the help of local artists.

The artists have been planning the project since May.

Glover says she thinks the city "is on an upward slope of creative and beautiful aesthetics."
