Creative minds are teaming up on a mural in downtown Asheville.

Artist Ian Wilkinson is collaborating with Renda Writer at Western Carolina Rescue Ministries. They began work Thursday in the dining area.

Writer, of Miami, is on a World Peace Mural Tour that has taken him to cities all over the country.

Wilkinson said Western Carolina Rescue Ministries, a haven for the homeless, is a fitting place for the mural.

"The rescue mission is doing amazing things. And so, we wanted to reflect that, and we thought with the positive message Renda Writer is spreading, we thought this is the perfect venue to have him work," Wilkinson said.

Wilkinson also plans several other big murals on the outside of Western Carolina Rescue Ministries.
