The mural is at the intersection of Georgia Avenue and Price Avenue in Downtown Wheaton. It is a beautiful new addition. It will help improve Wheaton's walkability and draw people who will support Wheaton’s economy. It is at 11301 Georgia Avenue where Caramelo Bakery is located. It is near the Wheaton Streetery where Price Avenue meets Elkins Street.
