Local artist and author Stephanie Segal Miller, who has a studio at the Noyes Arts Garage, completed the 10 foot-by-48 foot piece at 900 Mediterranean Ave., behind Shore Park Hi-Rise and around the corner from the Pennsylvania Avenue School.

The piece was sponsored by the Atlantic City Arts Foundation.

“For several years, I’d dreamt of painting a giant zebra popping out somewhere in Atlantic City, a happy surprise people would catch out of the corner of their eye,” Miller said in a statement.

“The best part of working on the mural was meeting the neighbors. So many people stopped by — the kids zipped by on bikes, stopped to talk or do chalk art on the sidewalks. Adults did a double take when they walked by the zebra, and circled back to check it out or say hello.”

Miller said regular visitors checked on her progress, and some stopped by to say thank you and express their appreciation while she was working on the piece.
