Local News

New unreviled artwork is headed to the Roanoke City Courthouse. 

Monday Roanoke Catholic School unveiled “Angelus Stella”, a collaborative mural designed and painted by a group of 11 students in grades 8-12 that attend the school. 

Students began working on this project during the summer of 2018. The portable mural project was an extension of the school’s mission to instill and build a sense of the community through service to others.

There are over 700 combined community service hours in the piece.  

Project leaders said that students worked all summer, mornings, afternoons, and weekends to conceptualize, design, and complete the project.

The project was commissioned by Roanoke Circuit Judge David Carson.

The artwork is now headed to the Roanoke City Courthouse to be hung up in a private area.
