This month marks the 100-year anniversary of Carlsbad Caverns National Park. In celebration of the centenary anniversary, the City of Carlsbad and the Carlsbad Arts Council are unveiling a new mural designed by world-renowned artist Kelsey Montague. The mural, located at 220 S. Canal Street, welcomes visitors from the Carlsbad Caverns into the City of Carlsbad. Standing 23’ x23’, the mural is a fanciful interpretation of bat wings in honor of the Carlsbad Cavern’s favorite inhabitants, the Mexican free-tailed bat. The mural was commissioned by the Carlsbad Arts Council and was paid for through a generous contribution by Chevron.
