Murals on Storage Tanks Depict Images of Texas Independence

We learn about two large murals on the sides of Shell storage tanks near Beltway 8 along Hwy 225. The murals depict scenes from the Battle of San Jacinto. Each mural measures forty feet by 140 feet. The artwork was created by Native Sun Productions, a media company based in San Antonio and Valparaiso, Ind.
