JULY


AR TS<br />

The City of Lucedale and <strong>George</strong> <strong>County</strong> love the arts. The Lucedale Fine<br />

Arts Club has been a strong promoter of arts and crafts for a half-century. The<br />

Art Committee of the <strong>George</strong> <strong>County</strong> Chamber of Commerce has been very<br />

active. They produced the art for the Lucedale Mural, the BHGRE Mural,<br />

and the new Lucedale Welcome Sign.<br />

Gingham Tree Arts & Crafts Festival<br />

For 51 years, the Gingham Tree Festival has been promoting<br />

arts and crafts. Pains are taken to ensure that all the arts &<br />

crafts sold at the Festival are original. Any non-original art<br />

purveyors will have their wares confiscated and will be barred<br />

from attending the next festival. The festival also selects a<br />

piece of historical art every year which is then sold as prints.<br />

Lucedale Mural<br />

South side of Main St./Hwy 198 downtown Lucedale.<br />

Each letter in the Lucedale Mural, represents different<br />

aspects of <strong>George</strong> <strong>County</strong>: agriculture, businesses, churches,<br />

festivals, historic landmarks, nature, and schools. Created<br />

by The Art Committee of the <strong>George</strong> <strong>County</strong> Chamber<br />

of Commerce, the artists were: Bryan Bennett, Jaron<br />

Churchwell, Christy Cooley, Jacob Havard, Mallory Hoerner,<br />

Tracy Mardis, Kriss Mizelle, Dee Turner, and Kelly<br />

Wilkerson.<br />

Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate (BHGRE) Mural<br />

BHGRE Traditions, 987 Mill Street, Lucedale-Created by The Art Committee of the <strong>George</strong> <strong>County</strong> Chamber of Commerce.<br />

Look for all the creatures/animals hidden in the mural; it makes for a fun “eye spy” game for all ages. Click on the QR code to see<br />

the details for the “eye spy” game.<br />

The Wood Sculpture by Dayton Scoggins was carved with a chainsaw from a stump left over from a beloved tree that had to be cut<br />

down . Story Time was sculpted by Jim Corley and it was based on his grandmother and her grandchild. School children pulled the<br />

sculpture to the Library when it was first installed.. City Park’s Amphitheater, a Jim Corley design, is covered with tiles painted by<br />

school children. The Children’s Sundial, an analemmatic dial, created by JimCorley is in City Park. The Veteran’s Memorial by Jim<br />

Corley has been engineered to direct sunlight on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month on the seal in front of the sculpture,<br />

amazing art and enineering.<br />
