“A Gathering of Stone County Heroes” is the newest Stone County mural. This mural celebrates Mississippi’s Bicentennial.
Briley Hines (McHenry), Paxton and Lucy George (Perk), Katharine Spacht (Perk), and Donna and Davis Walker were among the students at the Summer Art Workshop sponsored by the Stone County Arts Council in partnership with the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. Art Instructor Kelli Spacht worked with students to create different art pieces each day! Students learned weaving, drawing, abstract watercolor painting, and made Chihuly inspired bowls.
