Take an Art Walk in McDonough!

Art Walk McDonough Ga

Take an Art Walk in McDonough!  What a fun way to get out and explore the beautiful city along with the creativity around town! 

Participants can stop in the McDonough Welcome Center located at 15 Griffin Street and pick up an official Art Walk McDonough printed guide.  The 1.5 mile self-guided walking tour will begin at the Welcome Center and will feature 15 murals, models, and artworks by both local and national artists.  Artist Melissa Burgoyne’s Luna Moth is just one of the murals featured on the Art Walk McDonough guide.  The tour will end at the Hood Street Gallery where Art Walk McDonough participants will receive an “I Walked the Walk” magnet to commemorate their journey.

McDonough Art Walk

 For a chance to be featured on Main Street McDonough’s social media, participants should include #ArtWalkMcDonough when posting photos of the tour.  With their inaugural Art Walk, Main Street McDonough chose to feature artwork located outside in order to allow for social distancing between participants.  While the goal of the Art Walk is to showcase the artwork throughout downtown McDonough as well as to provide a safe event for the public to enjoy, Main Street McDonough also encourages participants to visit businesses on the Square.
