AJC–Kennesaw to unveil KSU mural for festival

This is the second year the City of Kennesaw has collaborated with students to create an amazing public art mural on the side of one of the city's iconic brick buildings. This mural is an interactive design where people in the community are encouraged to come take pictures in front of it. 

The design, done by Kennesaw State University Graphic Design student, Crys Newberry, is one that shows the city's growth by linking it's history with a vibrant modern look.  

The unveiling of the Second Annual Big Shanty Mural is happening April 20th at 6:30pm at The Venue on Main.

A very special thanks to High Stakes Digital, Simmertime Cafe, and The Venue on Main for making this mural possible.
