Art at Winding Stairs

As a public park develops around the Winding Stairs natural landmark, this grant funded the integration of art into the design through a logo, signage, paintings, a sculpture and a mural. The park was opened in June 2015 within the borders of Macon County featuring woods, hillsides, bluffs, natural springs and an impressive, deeply entrenched stream gorge. Erosion from the stream has created small drops with the vertical walls of the bordering cherry limestone, creating the Winding Stairs. The Art at Winding Stairs project included creations by school children and local artists throughout its implementation.
