Mural Descriptions

    Featured Mural - Downtown View This mural is located in downtown Forest City at 149 E Main St. The original mural was done in 2000 and was redone around 2011. Clive Hayes is the artist for this Mural. The town asked him to paint it as something to depict the town as a whole. Clive's idea for this mural was to give an illusion of the town. He hid alot of objects in the mural to make it more of a "find and seek" style. He enjoyed this piece because he got to make it up as he went still including a lot of history along the way.

    Mural Mention - County Farm Museum Mural Don't let the name fool you... this museum does have a large collection of farm equipment, but there are many household items and many other artifacts displayed. Don't forget the beautiful detailed murals by Clive Haynes depicting a time gone by. These large murals are depicting the cycle of growing cotton and the early textle mills of the country and are outstanding features of the museum.

     The County Farm Museum is located in Forest City at 240 Depot St. It is open wednesday through saturday from 10 to 4. Admission is $2 for adults and children get in Free.

I love what you folks are doing. Several years ago we went to Exeter California to see their Mural trail. We spent hours in this little town looking at the murals and trying to find the hidden objects in each. We talked with the towns people, had lunch, shopped in the shops. I love the mural trails, and yours is going to be one of the best. Thanks for keeping us in the loop.

Art is everywhere in Asheville! This gorgeous mural of Dolly Parton by Gus Cutty is the newest mural you'll see in town. Gus created the mural with spray paint in 3 days. See it for yourself at Beauty Parade on Haywood Rd in West Asheville.

Love your mural artwork! The local references, the depiction of marvelous, beautiful, and colorful nature - landscapes, birds, animals, butterflies, and glorious flowers - invites close study and is very engaging!
