New Art Welcomes Visitors to Vicksburg


Artist Drew Landon Harris has made his mark on his adopted city. Originally from New Mexico, Harris has been in Vicksburg for a couple of years now. Most recently his mark is a 30 foot by 60 foot mural on the side of the downtown building at 1107 Washington Street.

Drew Harris uses a crane to put down the next layer to his art. The mural, which should be completed this week, was commissioned by a well-known local businesswoman, Kelle Barfield.

Drew Harris lays out the wording.

The artwork at 1107 Washington can be seen as you head north on Washington from downtown. It should help to welcome visitors for many years.

The artist, Drew Landon Harris.
