Community Murals by Wellston’s Young PeopleProject led by Make Wellston Beautiful
About the project.
The Wellston High School Art Club, in collaboration with Make Wellston Beautiful, will be painting an array of murals in Wellston in Jackson County. These community murals will not only benefit the art club by allowing students to earn service hours and display their artistic abilities, but also benefits the community because the new artwork has the potential to bring in tourists and improve the aesthetics of Wellston, while improving mental health of both the artists and the surrounding community members.
This project has met its Cause Connector goal! If you would still like to contribute to the project and Make Wellston Beautiful, donations may be mailed to:

FAO staff comments.
Community murals and art installations are focal point for community pride. With the added element of putting the art in the hands of Wellston’s young people, this project will uplift Jackson County residents of all ages through the pride of creating the mural as well as the everyday benefit of having art as part of the community’s landscape.
