PUEBLO – An almost year-long project in Pueblo is now complete thanks to the dedication of artist Tonio LeFebre whose mural in the Hyde Park neighborhood is a beauty.

While in the middle of the project some vandals defaced the mural, leading Tonio to consider not completing the work.

However, the community stepped forward to encourage him to not let others bring him down.

“It is fulfilling. I’m excited that it is finally done. Its been a long work in process,” said LeFebre

People who live near the mural have promised to keep an eye out for vandals in a community effort to protect the work of art.
