Community Mural Highlights Kentucky Town

The town of Jenkins, Ky., along with a number of partners, has created the “Our Town” project to strengthen the cultural identity of the community and attract visitors. The 10-by-45-foot mural, located along Route 3086 in Jenkins, was funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. The mural was designed by Letcher County artists Lacy Hale and Pam Oldfield Meade.

The two designed a paint-by-numbers system which allowed for community painting parties where over 60 people, from children to senior citizens, could add their touch to the installment. The mural reflects the past, present, and future of Jenkins.
