Public is Invited to Mural Unveiling at J.P. Carr Gym

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

February 16, 2018

In recognition of Black History Month, Rockdale County Parks and Recreation will unveil an outdoor mural at the J.P. Carr Gymnasium at 90 Hardin Street. The canvas is part of the Rockdale Youth Mural Exhibit (RYME) and is funded by a Georgia Council for the Arts grant.

The unveiling will be on Tuesday, February 27 at 12:00 p.m.

Artist Immanuel Reed created the artwork which is an image influenced by the historical significance of that community. Students from Rockdale County Public Schools helped with the project which brought creative minds together.

“We are grateful to all who helped with this design,” said Jason Redmond, Deputy Director of Parks and Recreation Operations. “The mural is something unique for the community.”

To drive an appreciation for visual art, a second RYME mural will be unveiled at the Milstead Park splash pad in a few months.

For more information, please contact Deputy Director Redmond at (770) 278-7257.
