Mural project aimed at renewal

Written by 

art muralsA mural project called “On Hallowed Ground” aims to honor the heritage of Dillsboro, showcase artistic talents and lend a hand in the revitalization of the village.

The heritage mural will tell the story of Dillsboro. It’s a tale of feuds, hardships and extremely tough work. The town of Dillsboro will benefit from this project as it is intended to be a reawakening of the heart of the town, a journey to being an art destination and a thriving town again.

It will take nine months to paint the mural, which will be placed in Dillsboro and unveiled on Oct. 5, 2013 to begin the annual “ColorFest - Art & Taste of Appalachia festival.”



The mural project, created by Doreyl Ammons Cain, will raise funds through Kickstarter. Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects full of ambitious, innovative and imaginative energy that are brought to life through the direct support of others.

Those who make a pledge to assist with the project will receive an original limited edition art print of the mural in Nov. 2013. Names of those who pledge $100 will also be inscribed on a plaque to be placed on the mural. If you would like to donate to the project, please send to: On Hallowed Ground, Doreyl Ammons Cain, P.O. Box 339, Tuckasegee, N.C. 28783.

    Standing in the Belhurst Castle, a Great Gatsby-esque property situated on Seneca Lake in Geneva, N.Y., I realized it had been around a decade since my childhood friends and I had been in the same room together. And yet, here we were, drinks in hand, smiles plastered across our faces, as family members and dates for the wedding stood in front of us, eager to capture the moment we all were huddled as one.
