A new downtown mural was gifted to Windsor's downtown by CBC Windsor on Thursday afternoon.

The mural adds to the already colourful Maiden Lane, where several buildings already have paintings covering their exterior walls. The latest addition is the result of CBC's MyWindsor6 campaign.

More than a month ago, CBC asked residents what they thought made Windsor a great city. Hundreds of suggestions poured in throughout the six-week campaign. 

To make those ideas come to life, CBC brought them to two artists known as Omen and Denial.
