Macon Arts Alliance Announces New Downtown Mural Installations
By creating a series of beautiful art installations through a communal process, Macon Arts Alliance and the Macon Transit Authority can now literally and emotionally transport passengers, visitors and residents to beautiful places.
The new larger-than-life mural installations at the downtown Macon Transfer Station use viewers’ imaginations to connect them to nature and to new possibilities through transit, flight and collaboration.
Macon Arts Alliance and local resident, Marlon Baldwin, partnered to secure a generous grant from the Downtown Challenge of the Community Foundation of Central Georgia to install three murals on the expansive wall located on the MTA Transfer next to the historic Terminal Station on 5th Street in downtown Macon. Interested residents and visitors were encouraged to participate in the mural creations by working directly with Isaac Ramsey, Christopher Logan and Mary Frances Burt, the featured artists who were selected through a blind judging process. The new vibrant art installations add vitality and interest to the bustling station where MTA passengers can make transit and personal connections. The public and press were invited to join Macon Arts Alliance for an official ribbon cutting ceremony of the recently completely project on Friday morning.
