WHEATON – A mural entitled "Pearls of the Universe" is currently being painted on the side of Essencia Yoga at 1026 E. College Ave. in Wheaton.
A dedication ceremony and reception will be held in honor of the mural from 1 to 4 p.m. Oct. 6.
The work, which references cultures from around the world, celebrates the city's diversity and openness.
In the weeks before the ceremony, residents will have two chances to put their names on the mural. From 1 to 4 p.m. Sept. 8 and from 9 a.m. to noon Sept. 14, muralist R.J. Ogren will add names to the mural in exchange for donations. For $50, donor initials will be included in the piece, and for $500 or $1,000, residents can see their names on the building.
