Painted in 1888 while he was at Arles, “Starry Night” by Vincent van Gogh has become one of the most recognized works of art in the world.

From Don McLean’s song ‘Starry, Starry Night’ (based on the painting), to the endless number of merchandise products featuring this image, it is nearly impossible to avoid this amazing painting — even if for some inexplicable reason you wanted to avoid it!
As a school project, students from Live Oak Classical School in Waco painted this version on a building at 8th between Washington and Columbus. Here is a photograph of the mural:
