KINGSVILLE -- Artists and volunteers -- in Kingsville -- are almost finished with a beautiful dedication to the Virgin of Guadalupe.
They've been working on chalk art of the Virgin for weeks.
It's in honor of her birthday...which was earlier this month.
The image is about 72 feet by 46 feet.
You can see it at 6th Street in Kingsville.
An art professor from Texas A&M University-Kingsville organized the project and does something like this every year.
One of the artists -- who helped -- says it's been an honor.
Daniel E. Cuellar III said, "I enjoy doing it as far as the community being involved in it and enjoying the art work and being able to see this type of artwork in this city is also an honor for me to be able to allow them to see such artwork."
The artists and volunteers hope to put the final touches on the dress, shroud and face later this week.
