Corpus Christi coloring book debuts Nov. 30
Be the first to get a copy of "The Downtown Corpus Christi Coloring Book” book when it debuts at Peppermint Lane on Saturday, November 30. The 30-page coloring book is illustrated by local artist Ricardo Gallegos and includes iconic downtown landmarks and landscapes, including some of the area’s most colorful murals.
Gallegos, who owns Elevated Screen Printing, created the coloring book in conjunction with the Corpus Christi Downtown Management District. Illustrations include the Selena Memorial statue, Whataburger Field, the Ritz Theatre, and a selection of some of the city’s brightest murals. Other spots are the Queen of the Sea fountain on Retama Street, the red bikes at the marina’s T-heads, the Dallas Hotel on Starr Street, and the Friendship monument of Capitán Blas Maria de la Garza Falcón.
The project was funded by the Downtown Revitalization Alliance, the nonprofit arm of the management district. About 1,500 books were printed
Any coloring books left over after Peppermint Lane will be available at the Downtown Management office, 223 N. Chaparral St., #A, and the Art Walk on Friday, December 6.
A Management District spokesperson said a second edition could soon be in the works, depending on the popularity of Volume 1.
