DENVER — Two Colorado natives who are part of the star-studded United States women's national soccer team (USWNT) that brought home its second World Cup title in a row are enshrined in a mural in Denver's RiNo Art District.
A mural of Lindsey Horan and Mallory Pugh, who both scored goals in the tournament, is displayed on the side of Improper City, a coffee shop and craft beer spot on Walnut Street.
Local artist Marissa Napoletano finished working on the piece in May, a few weeks before the start of the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup in France.
The effort is part of the USWNT's Everywhere campaign, which recruited talented, local female artists to create 11 player murals to be displayed in cities across the country.
Using a new U.S. Soccer app, fans can also scan the different murals with their cell phone to read exclusive content about USWNT players.
The goal of the campaign was to increase the visibility of USWMT players by bringing artistic and digital experiences to different cities throughout the country.
Other player murals have been constructed in San Francisco, Atlanta, Orlando, St. Louis, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Portland, and Cincinnati.
By beating the Netherlands 2-0 on Sunday, the USWNT won a record fourth Women's World Cup title and second in a row.
The World Cup champions were celebrated on Wednesday with a big parade in New York City. Let's hear it for Team USA!
