Georgia Southern faculty member selected to create mural for Starland Mural Project
The Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art faculty member Jon Witzky has been selected as one of the eight local artists to create murals for the Starland Mural Project. The Starland Mural Project is an initiative to support the funding, permitting, creation and conservation of murals in the Starland District in Savannah.
“Savannah is such a vibrant place, full of creative people,” said Witzky. “It’s great to be involved and to have artwork seen by those who might not have a chance to see it otherwise.”
Witzky’s abstract landscapes of rural and city life are inspired by Savannah’s past and present, and aim to enrich the local community.
“Public art can help to build and sustain identity, create public discourse and enliven areas that have been neglected,” said Witzky.
Witzky’s mural will be on the south corner of 41st and Bull Streets, on the old Starland Dairy building.
