An Italian artist whose murals span the globe will work his magic on the side of a downtown building beginning Monday. Giuseppe Percivati, a professional muralist from Turin, Italy, will prepare, sketch and then paint the south wall of a building in the 400 block of Central Avenue, in front of the Exchange Street Parking Plaza. His mural will be Hot Springs National Park Rotary's gift to Hot Springs as it ends its Centennial Year celebration at the end of June.

Mary Neilson, founder of the Hot Springs Area Cultural Alliance, said spectators are welcome to come and watch Percivati work his craft, noting, "We just want the public to watch it progress." A lifelong artist, Percivati specializes in murals and paintings. He has created works all over the world, with murals featured in destinations such as Australia, Portugal, Pakistan and Japan.
