City of Augusta to unveil 15th Street bridge mural

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Augusta city leaders and artists will unveil a public art mural on the 15th Street bridge Monday.

Artists Lucy and Jace McTier have been working on the mural - along with a group of 15 volunteers - since early October.

The project was funded through a portion of a $1.8 million community challenge grant awarded to Augusta from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Greater Augusta Arts Council chose the McTiers, who are veteran mural artists, to produce the art.

The concept of the mural was based on community input gathered at public meetings. Included in the mural are the T.W. Josey High School mascot, a young couple dreaming of their bright future, and a Georgia peach tree.

The mural, located on the Rosa T. Beard Memorial Bridge at the 15th Street overpass near Wrightsboro Road, will be unveiled during a press conference at 11 a.m. Monday.
