LOCAL ARTIST DISPLAYS TALENT IN AN UNUSUAL PLACE

School Cafeteria Sports A New Underwater Look

The cafeteria at Gulfport High School has a new "underwater" look.

Local artist, Debbie Reynolds, transformed the lunch room into a giant aquarium. Tropical fish, dolphins and other marine life are featured in the colorful mural. The artist spent about 150 hours creating this underwater work of art. Painting murals in a school cafeteria might seem a little unusual, but not to Reynolds.

"Well, actually I've done just about every cafeteria in the Gulfport school system, except for one. And they already had something on the wall. So, I'm kind of getting used to the cafeteria thing," Reynolds said.

She says the biggest challenge with this latest school project was getting over her fear of heights to reach the high walls in the cafeteria.
