A new mural in downtown Garner painted by Sean Kernick in January 2019.
The United Arts Council of Raleigh is working with several Wake County towns on the introduction of new murals in prominent locations. Fuquay-Varina, Garner, and Wake Forest were the first three towns to complete contracts with United Arts and their selected artists for mural projects.
Artist Sean Kernick painted the first two murals. The first mural is located at 409 Broad Street in Fuquay-Varina, an impressive welcome to downtown that celebrates the civic pride and patriotism of that town with vibrant energy and creativity. Kernick also completed a mural in Garner, an exciting addition to downtown that celebrates nature with vibrant color and energy.. Wake Forest selected Taylor White to complete a mural in Spring 2019. Taylor’s work is figurative, aiming to infuse a colorful artfulness in each mural.
United Arts is grateful to the Wake County commissioners for their ongoing support and commitment to the arts that has made these murals possible. United Arts is honored to be a part of our thriving arts community and these murals are a visible reminder of that.
