COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A nonprofit art center plans to begin painting more murals around northern Kentucky.

Tamara Harkavy, who is director of ArtWorks, says a $50,000 grant from Haile Foundation is making the endeavor possible.

Harkavy says the group is "looking for great walls in northern Kentucky."

On Tuesday, the organization unveiled the design of a mural they will paint in Covington depicting various old homes found in the Helentown neighborhood.

Two other murals will be painted over the summer - one in Covington and one in Newport.
