The first EpicArtTM mural was unveiled on April 16, 2007 at LyondellBasell. The success of this early project would pave the way for several more murals in the district. Signed and unsigned limited edition prints are available for purchase from our gift shop

The story behind the art:

On April 16, 1836, the Texas Army did something that changed the entire course of history.  Coming to a fork in the road, the exhausted column of civilian soldiers, beaten down by the ravages of weather, starvation, and absolute desperation, decided to stop retreating and finally face their enemy.  Their destiny, they believed, was choosing that time and place to finally shift the balance of war to their cause.  Veering to the right and into the path of conflict, the little army trudged towards Santa Anna's forces.  The Texian soldier depicted in the EpicArt mural is pointing to that very place--- the plains of San Jacinto--- where the battle cry "Remember the Alamo!' would become synonymous with Texas Independence.  The Lone Star & Stripes in the background was the ubiquitous ensign flown during the most of the Texas Revolution.
