CARE mural seeks to encourage community and wellness through art

Xaivier Ringer and Ellie Borromeo, owners of Rome Mural CoLab, work with local kids to formulate a design for the CARE mural, which will be placed in the YMCA’s basketball gym. Harbin Clinic, in partnership with Rome Mural CoLab and the YMCA of Rome and Floyd County, is joining forces with local students to create a mural. The aim of the artwork — titled Connecting All. Reaching Everyone, or CARE — is to celebrate health, wellness and the diverse community of Rome. All entries will be due by May 14. For more information about the CARE mural or to participate, visit
