Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- A blank wall at the Chahinkapa Zoo is in the middle of a transformation.
Artist Shawn McCann is painting a 3-D mural.
McCann grew up in Wahpeton and currently lives in the cities, illustrating books and doing street art.
This is one of three murals he will paint in town.
The painting features a zoo celebrity - Tal the orangutan.
Shawn Mccann- Street Painter & Artist: "It's going to have the effect of walking through a gazebo, and Tal the orangutan is going to be throwing a bunch of paint in the air, and from the paint, the zoo animals are going to appear."
McCann will be painting everyday, and expects to finish the mural next weekend.
