UNG art seniors leading GHA on mural project

Michelle Vatral and Melanie Mitchell, both seniors majoring in Art at the University of North Georgia, are interning this summer with the Gainesville Housing Authority (GHA) to mentor and lead teen residents in completing a mural project celebrating the GHA’s Melrose Apartments community.

The seniors will gain experience in teaching, project management, community relations and mentoring the teens.

The mural, to be 9’ x 36’, is part of a larger effort by the Vision 2030 Public Art Committee of the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce to beautify the area with displays of public art. The committee hopes to eventually fill the 900 ft. wall along Pearl Nix Parkway that acts as a traffic buffer to the Melrose Apartments community.

The group of the two seniors and a half dozen GHA residents and friends are designing the mural first, and plan to unveil it later in July.

So, watch the mural come alive in the next few weeks!
