Travels to rural neighbors

In an effort to work with our neighboring rural communities, while telling the story of our unique Red Hills Region, Thomasville Center for the Arts has taken the Walk on the Wild Side public art exhibition on the road! Starting with four neighboring towns, Thomasville shares 8 murals and 8 flora painted wraps with Metcalfe, Cairo, Monticello, and Pelham, in an effort to drive interest to these already-interesting rural communities.
Beginning February 1 – March 15, Thomasville sends both Metcalfe, GA and Cairo, GA hand-picked artwork in an effort to work towards the greater goal of strengthening our region. Each town will create their own version of a “public art walk” in their community, and build interest around their area, using art as a draw. From March 18 – April 30, Cairo will hand over the artwork to Pelham, GA, while Metcalfe will do the same in Monticello, FL.
Muralists include Toni Ardizzone from Austin, Texas, NED, Sarah Painter, Cosby Hayes, Joe Cowdrey and Tony Barton from Tallahassee, FL, and Cindy Inman from Thomasville, GA. We encourage you to take a ride, and then take a walk to have a unique experience, enjoy artwork in a charming historic rural community, while supporting these regional artists and your neighbors. Each location will be unique and come to life through the art.
Want to sponsor your town? Thomasville Center for the Arts will provide you with a robust public art walk kit, and guide you throughout the process – with the assurance that you will have fun along the way.
