The second phase of Atmore’s Art Walk will be commencing soon.

Atmore’s Art Walk is an interactive tour of the Atmore area featuring both temporary and permanent art installations intended to promote tourism, boost commerce, encourage healthy lifestyles, promote seniors, educate children, inspire the community, bring together all demographics and spur workforce development through bringing attention to the public school system while educating those students currently enrolled in the skilled labor curriculum and connecting them with local industry, according to the Atmore Area Chamber of Commerce.

The second phase of the art walk is the installation of trains in multiple public spaces throughout the city. The locations include parks, hospitals and educational areas to the business district, according to chamber officials.

The final steps in the train installation will include the trains being uniquely painted by local artists. Each train will be reflective of the location and/or business it represents. Once painted they will be installed through our collaborative efforts with our local government.

A dedication of the trains will be held DECEMBER 17, at 10 a.m. at Escambia County High School.
