Community Mural Project

The Lawrenceville Arts Commission announced a Community Mural Call for Art in late 2022.  This open call urged artists to submit designs for a community mural planned along Buford Drive in Downtown Lawrenceville.  The selected mural wall is approximately 250 feet long and has a total of 1867 square feet.  A portion of the mural will be designed for community participation in the painting process organized by the Arts Commission.  

The City of Lawrenceville is thrilled to announce the successful completion of the "Lawrenceville Blooms" community mural in Downtown Lawrenceville. This artistic endeavor, brought to life by the Arts Commission and local artist Teresa Abboud, serves as a symbol of unity and diversity in the heart of the city. The mural wall is approximately 250 feet long and has a total of 1867 square feet. Tune in to our exclusive interview with Teresa Abboud and Aura-Leigh Sanders for a behind-the-scenes look at "Lawrenceville Blooms."

Kinetic Art SculptureSinclair Anthony Howe

The Lawrenceville Arts Commission and the City of Lawrenceville proudly present Lawrenceville’s first kinetic wind sculpture. Sinclair, an original sculpture by renowned artist Anthony Howe was installed in Lawrenceville’s Gateway Park on Friday, May 19. Sinclair was selected and recommended by the Lawrenceville Arts Commission and approved by the City Council in early 2023. The completed artwork measures 178” H x 68”x 48” D and is made of stainless steel. It has no motor or battery and is entirely operated by winds of only one mph.

Anthony Howe, a native of Salt Lake City, Utah, attended the Taft School in Watertown, Connecticut, Cornell University, and the Skowhegan School of Sculpture and Painting. After a short career as a watercolor painter, he discovered working with metal as a medium through a part-time job erecting steel shelving. Soon he was creating kinetic wind sculptures using discarded elevator cables. He now resides in Orcas Island, Washington, with his business partner and wife, Lynn. His work has sold works to hundreds of private collections from the Middle East to California and many places in between. Most notably, In Cloud Light III was installed in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for the 2016 Summer Olympics. Lawrenceville is home to the first Anthony Howe sculpture in Georgia.
