Jonesboro Mural Dedication Ceremony Takes Place Aug 19

The latest mural in the community’s downtown arts initiative, and first for the Jonesboro section of town, will be dedicated Saturday August 19, from 4pm to 7pm. The city will celebrate this landmark event with a full series of family-friendly activities on Trade Street.

Food trucks and live entertainment are planned, as well lots of fun for the kids, including face painting, bubble play and a patriotic pet parade. The mural pays tribute to the Jonesboro Cornet Band, a popular musical group in the area near the turn of the twentieth century. Orange County Artist Scott Nurkin was commissioned by the Sanford Appearance Commission to create this 7th work of art in the series.
