I captured my favorite image of the week on Feb. 25. 

Artist Armando Castelan signs his mural at the Community Frontline “Black Business Impact” mural reveal party on Feb. 25 at the “Yeager Experience” building, 2800 Yeager St. (Cristian ArguetaSoto | Fort Worth Report)

Latino artist Armando Castelan signed his artwork at the “Yeager Experience” building, 2800 Yeager St. The piece features Black business leaders in Fort Worth past and present. 

In this image, I tried to capture the moment Castelan finalizes the piece as his work. In collaboration with nonprofit Community Frontline, Castelan created the mural to preserve the legacy and impact of Black business on Fort Worth and create a space where the community can gather.

I shot this image from a low angle to include a portion of the mural and for dramatic effect.

From the Community Frontline mural reveal to Ash Wednesday, our photojournalist at the Fort Worth Report captures the diversity of events through images of the week.
