Public Art

Thank goodness for public art! It revitalizes, beautifies, and shares the unique stories and heritage of communities. And they withstand the test of time or at least a few decades. The Hub City has done its part to contribute to a movement to restore, enrich, and honor its corner of the American South in intricate and awe-inspiring ways that are gifts to locals and visitors alike. Some of these murals are relatively new, in progress, or have withstood the test of time for nearly 40 years. Each work of art holds a different message, and they can inspire over and over again, free of charge.
