Acclaimed Navajo artist donates mural to Williams

Unique collaboration by youth, artists on 'Sacred Hunt'

WILLIAMS, Ariz. - Much like a caterpillar transforms into a butterfly, one wall at the east end of downtown Williams was transformed from plain brick to the host of a vibrant multi-colored mural. The mural, started July 3, is the work of Flagstaff-based Navajo artist Shonto Begay in collaboration with Cy Wagoner. Begay said the idea for a mural on the west wall of Native America came from Williams Mayor John Moore.
