Colorful murals decorate Belleview’s upcoming community center

An upcoming community center in Belleview is getting an artistic touch.

The new Belleview Community Center opens in the early part of 2022 and the city is excited to show off murals that decorate the building’s exterior.

According to the city, EJ Nieves of NEHS Galleries has been hard at work painting various murals for the upcoming center, including the latest mural titled “Sunflower Hour.”

The City of Ocala has seen a growing collection of murals across the city’s indoor and outdoor spaces, including a mural that Nieves added to the Paddock Mall back in April.
