Arts and Culture Board mural artists selected, work begins
The City’s Arts and Culture Board has two new murals underway in Georgetown.
Animal Shelter—”Pick Me” mural
The “Pick Me” mural is expected to be completed March 28 at the Georgetown Animal Shelter, 110 W.L. Walden Drive.
The Georgetown Animal Shelter and Georgetown Arts and Culture Board selected artist Jason Tetlak of Jacksonville, Florida, in February to complete the mural.
Georgetown Title mural
Georgetown Title, in collaboration with the Arts and Culture Board, has selected Oakland, California, artist Molly Keen for the mural design that will be installed this spring.
The mural design “Railway Rhymes,” features abstract shapes and colors while highlighting a train element that represents the history of the site, which was once home to Belford Lumber Company and a stop on the railroad.
This project is the first commercial mural as part of the Percent for Public Art Adjacent to Capital Improvement Projects. The Georgetown Title building, 702 Rock St., is adjacent to two public improvements projects, including the Rock Street sidewalk improvements and the new Eighth Street parking lot. This program presents an opportunity for public art to beautify surrounding spaces that have become more visible to the public.
