Virginia St. Van Helten has a series of photorealistic paintings on silos across the country that has gained global recognition, according to a city news release. The McKinney mural will be one of the largest works in North Texas and will serve as the backdrop for the city’s new Municipal Community Complex. Van Helten is expected to continue work on the mural over the summer.
