The Gadsden Museum of Art is creating a public art mural in Gadsden. The mural is located on the back wall of the museum facing the municipal parking lot. The mural relates to the state of Alabama’s Tourism theme for the year. The artist’s work has a local relevance to the state-wide theme of "Year of Alabama Makers," and an Etowah County appeal. Greater Gadsden Area Tourism Executive Director Hugh Stump says it is a unique way to highlight and promote local people and local artistry and get others to travel to the area. The museum of art has partnered with the Tourism Board for the creation of the mural. The mural will be a temporary installation that will be exhibited for one year.
