AUSTIN -- An iconic Austin mural is getting help from some high school students.

If you haven't seen the "Greetings from Austin" mural in person, you may have seen it on a postcard.

This past weekend visual arts students from Creative Action Color Squad helped re-paint it.

The mural was created in 1998 by three artists. After years of greeting tourists, it's time for a fresh coat of paint.

The makeover costs about $10,000.

Weather permitting, renovations will be done in two to three weeks.
