First mural choice for downtown Decatur picked

Posted:

Decatur – The Decatur Area Arts Council announces their choice for the first mural to be painted for the city's mural project.

 

The project is part of an ongoing initiative to connect local artists, property owners, the city and other people in the community. The selected design was submitted by local artist and Executive Director of the Decatur Area Arts Council, Jerry Johnson.

 

Johnson explains the importance of this project "Our goals are to beautify buildings, inspire people. Create a positive feel and sense of pride. Show a little more about what the arts can do for a community, additional value in the arts."

 

Artists may submit as many designs as they'd like, and volunteers are always welcome. To submit a design go to www.decaturarts.or/murals
