One County, Many Voices

The Gaston County Museum is excited to announce a new exhibit: "One County, Many Voices."

This exhibit was made possible through collaboration with Gaston County Schools and support from a Grassroots grant provided by the Gaston County Arts Council. Six Gaston County high schools have created a joint mural exhibit in a street art style. Students were mentored by Gaston native and Charlotte-based muralist Bree Stallings. 

Each school was assigned a word that reflected the qualities of acceptance and community, as well as a specific color. Students had the freedom to design their mural in the style of their choosing, reflecting their word and artistic vision. The murals will be on display in the Gaston County Museum Courtyard beginning May 29th.  Come enjoy art and and celebrate our community!
