The Inaugural Macon Mural Festival Leaves its Mark on Macon
The Macon Arts Alliance and its partner Triangle Arts Macon made Macon a little more colorful this past weekend. The inaugural Macon Mural Festival provided 5 muralists an opportunity to create vibrant artworks at multiple locations around Macon.
There is one more brilliantly colored mural at the art covered Triangle Arts Macon now after the Macon Mural Festival.
Artist Christian Stanley from Winter Springs, Florida painted a very impressive mural of a group of psychedelically colored triceratops on a building across the street from Fall Line Brewing Co., which was the sponsor of his art for the Macon Mural Festival.
Stanley and his wife Jessica runs a business named C. Stanley Creative that creates custom murals and branding solutions for businesses in need of creative solutions.
Oliver's Corner Bistro was a sponsor for the artist Allison Dunavant from Johns Island, South Carolina. The side of the the location of one of the restaurant now is the home of a creative mural by Dunavant.
Dunavant's business is called Girls Who Paint Murals and offers branding and signage, residential and commercial murals, and more.
The skate park at Carolyn Crayton Park is the location of the artwork of Will Barker.
Barker also is known for his distinctive oil paintings. His artwork often features cowboys and scenes that look as if they were taken from an old spaghetti western film.
Artist Carlos Jefferson of McDonough, Georgia painted the mural sponsored by Synovus Band in Downtown Macon. The mural is located off of the alley next to the bank and features tributes to the history of the land that Macon was founded on, the wildlife of Middle Georgia, as well as some of the musical greats that once called Macon home.
Jefferson paints portraits and other subjects as well as public and commercial art.
The first year of the Macon Mural Festival brought 5 very talented muralists to Macon and leaves the city with some new, large scale artwork that is sure to attract even more art loving tourists to the heart of Middle Georgia. With a beginning this impressive, we at Middle Georgia Times are already looking forward to Macon Arts Alliance's next Macon Mural Festival.
