Mayor Announces Mural Project On West 7th



Some bright new colors will be coming to the downtown Hopkinsville area. Mayor Dan Kemp announced Tuesday that Belmont Elementary Art Club students, under the direction of Sarah Goodaker, have designed a mural that will be painted on the building at 619 West 7th Street.


   
The building, owned by Christian County, is located adjacent to Westside Park. Those involved with painting the mural will be volunteers from Belmont Elementary Art Club, other Belmont Elementary School students, and art enthusiasts in general. Kemp says the project is a partnership between the Christian County Board of Education, Belmont Elementary School, the City of Hopkinsville’s City Maintenance, Division of Public Works, Christian County, and the Downtown Renaissance Program.


   
He says the mural will be reflective of many things related to the heritage of Hopkinsville and Christian County, including a teardrop to represent the Trail of Tears, an eagle to represent the Ft. Campbell Army Airfield, a baseball and bat to represent the Hoptown Hoppers, and the town clock to represent Downtown Hopkinsville. The project should be completed within a couple of weeks.
