Murals Coming to LINC

21 Apr

LINC has more important news to share with all of our supporters. Do you want to see Newnan, Georgia become a more connected community with extensive trails and paths for runners, bicyclists, and much more? Keep up with LINC and all our exciting announcements.

Murals Coming to LINC

We are always working to find new ways to update the LINC 26-mile trail system in Newnan. We will soon be the home of two gorgeous murals representing the beauty of Georgia and especially our town of Newnan, Georgia.

John Christian will begin work on the first of these two murals on April 15th. John Christian is a wonderfully talented artist who “believes we all can create, but sometimes you need a little help or push in the right direction.”

He has worked as an artistic director, teacher, artist, and with his murals throughout small towns in Georgia, he wants to bring the history of these towns to life. His bio on the Georgia Mural Trail website states, “John is a avid historian and loves to take part in preserving a little part of history with each mural.”

His murals will bring the history and culture of Newnan to life with murals along our trail system in Newnan. 

John Christian from the Go Georgia Arts studio located in Hapeville, GA created the Georgia Mural Trail. The Georgia Mural Trail began as a commitment to paint fifty murals in fifty cities throughout Georgia in five years. 

This organization and mural trail is working to bring more attention to the arts throughout Georgia and encourage more people to create their own works of art.
