KPB MURAL IN MARBLE HILL GETS A FACE LIFE
The mural at Marble Hill has been refreshed by our local artist, Mary Ann Rentz, who also serves on the Keep Pickens Beautiful Board of Directors. Ms. Rentz has painted three murals that are displayed in various locations throughout the Pickens County to honor the history of our beautiful surroundings.
The mural in downtown Jasper illustrates the early days of our county, and there are two murals in the Town of Talking Rock: one shows when the railroad first arrived to Pickens, and the other mural depicts the movement of the Native Americans in the region.
Some history about Keep Pickens Beautiful:
KPB, formerly Citizens for a Clean Community, was founded in 1989. It was started by a group of concerned citizens striving to develop a clean and beautiful environment for Pickens County. As part of the Keep America Beautiful Program, KPB seeks to improve our quality of life by eliminating litter through increased public awareness. A key part of the waste “reduction” is “conservation” – using natural resources wisely and using less than usual in order to avoid waste.
At KPB, we want you to know about us, to join us, and to do your part. Every one has a role! We can all learn to REDUCE, REUSE, AND RECYCLE. Georgia’s Litter It Costs You program has adopted the Georgia Brown Thrasher as a mascot. “TRASHER” is here to remind you to put litter in its place, and to encourage you to get involved.
We invite you to browse some of our material and to find a spot to plug in with KPB. Call or e-mail and we will find a place just for you!
