100WW — A Chance to Shine

7059208D-1A56-4D30-BAAD-6F87497A9CD5This is it, this is Arthur’s chance to shine.

The town’s annual sidewalk mural contest drew dozens of wannabe artists from all around the county. The grand prize of $500 was a draw — pun intended — but the real prize was that the top three finishers would get commissions from the town’s Beautification Committee to paint murals on buildings all around the city.

His father wanted Arthur to join him in his roofing business; to eventually take over. But roofing was not Arthur’s destiny. He thought of himself as an artist. Hell, his nickname is Art.

This is his chance to shine.
