BOZEMAN, Mont. -

Hawthorne elementary students worked with local artists to brighten the Downtown Bozeman blast site.

The group spent a week painting a 50-foot long mural, as part of Project More Art, or "Mart."

On Monday morning, workers hung the panels on the plywood wall that hides the empty lot where a building once stood, before being torn down after the 2009 explosion.

Artists then went to work painting and touching up a few areas.

The mural features everything Bozeman- from a bobcat on Main, to the "M" on the Bridgers.

Project MArt Director Allison McGree said it was great to see the mural put together, and hopes onlookers will enjoy the site.

"It's amazing" McGree said. "It's a long process and a lot of work, and it's really unbelievable to see it together and it all matched up. It looks different outside, but it's great."

The mural will be unveiled during the first Art Walk on June 8th.
