The Marshall County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau has partnered with the Guntersville Museum to showcase landmarks around Marshall County with help from several local artists.
On April 29-30, the county hosted a weekend paint-out event in which Alabama artists painted selected historic places. The event was meant to enhance this year's ALABAMA 200 theme, Exploring Our Places, while simultaneously connecting the community with the statewide celebration through artistic expression.
The fifteen original works of art produced from the Paint-Out event are now being displayed as part of a traveling exhibit that will travel throughout Marshall County for the remainder of 2017.
The exhibit will be open to the public on the following dates/locations:
In addition to the fifteen historic landmarks chosen for the exhibit, the Marshall County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau also developed a brochure identifying other historic landmarks across the county that will be available at chambers and hotels for visitors beginning in September.
Following the completion of the exhibit, several pieces will be housed at the Marshall County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau and others will be donated to the cities to display.
