Newtown Park | 3150 Old Alabama Road
The mural, timely titled, “Everyone Has a Seat at the Creek” is a customized unique piece that represents aspects of Johns Creek and Georgia, along with celebrating the city’s richness in diversity and promoting inclusiveness in a fun and whimsical way. The mural was created by inspiring international street artist behind the #WHATLIFTSYOU movement. (https://kelseymontagueart.com).
Each chair has a special meaning, one celebrates the six bridges that can be found in Johns Creek, another celebrates Georgia as the “Peach State”, the tallest chair depicts Johns Creek’s diversity with nearly fifty different languages spoken in Johns Creek as well as the amazing parks we all enjoy, the great schools that have brought many to live in Johns Creek is hailed in the fourth chair, the shortest chair represents our global community spreading love, this chair is noticeably smaller to allow for those in wheelchairs to be included in the art. The last chair was done in support of the Daffodils for Hope Program to raise awareness of cancer survivorship. Last, but not least, are the butterfly wings intended for little ones and fur babies. It is our hope that people take their special photos and include the tag #SeetheCreek and #WhatLiftsYou in their social media posts to draw attention to this mural and our city.
