New wall art is coming to the City of Athens.

Local artist Aaron Taylor is currently working on a new project in Athens highlighting the local heritage. The City of Athens is coordinating the project with the owners of the Railway Cafe, where the mural is coming to life. The purpose?

Athens' Cultural Commission recommended the project as a way to highlight the arts in the city. So far it's only received favorable comments on the city's facebook page, and appears to be coming along nicely.

...and just down the street another local business has painted a mural on their building.
