Work should begin on Andalusia’s next downtown mural within the next month.

Pat Palmore, who chairs the city’s mural committee, presented a sketch of the new mural to the Andalusia City Council Tuesday.

Prep work will begin on Dairy Queen’s dine-in building soon, she said. The new mural will focus on education, and in addition to including early classroom scenes, will also include early schools. As well, more than 20 tiles of education-themed artwork designed by the county’s students will be an element of the mural.

Palmore said most area residents would be surprised by the traffic the Hank and Audrey Williams mural brings to Andalusia.

The education mural will be the city’s seventh.

Also planned are murals devoted to textiles and piney woods cattle.
