Trilogy Gunby

 

This design is an illustrated map of Augusta, highlighting many important Augusta landmarks to appeal to both locals and tourists alike.

 

Augusta's Azaleas

Augusta is well-known for its azaleas. While only enjoyed in the spring, this work can be enjoyed year-round for locals and tourists.

 

 

Butterfly Dreams

Krystle Corcino

 

May color take you away from the everyday hustle on the flutter of a butterflies wings in to a world of beautiful colors

 

 

Dogwood Tree and Tech-savvy Birds

Ashley Gray

 

This piece is a pretty arrangement of branches and birds. These birds are more tech-savvy than your average bird.

 

 

Cherokee Roses

Alyssa Beck

 

I love Georgia and want to celebrate the beautiful nature that can be found here. The wonderful Cherokee Rose is Georgia's state flower.

 

 

Downtown Landmarks

Jason Craig

 

"I wanted this piece to be an extension of Downtown Augusta. I don't want to Camouflage the box, I want to make it feel like it belongs here."

 

Kayaking at the Canal

Alyssa Beck

 

The Augusta Canal is my favorite place and hosts many outdoor activities. Kayaking is a great way to enjoy Augusta's nature.

 

 

Lightning Bolts

Jacob Vaz

 

"My piece loosely anthropomorphizes the excitement for downtown life and development with simple colors, shape, and symbolism"

 

Living Greener

Living Greener advocates for "nature awareness". Unzipping the traffic box allows a more beautiful, more eco-friendly Augusta to emerge.

 

 

Planet Caravan

Music

Music, like art, is an integral part of our daily lives; as such, they often enhance and complement one another when sharing the same space.

 

 

Orange Hearts

Leonard "Porkchop" Zimmerman

 

Two robots holding separate halves of a broken orange heart stand on opposite sides of the box with happy folks in between. It's only a matter of time before they meet. Maybe they'll meet after the light changes?

"Since moving to the CSRA I have become acquainted with the furor over the game of Golf. Several years ago I had the pleasure of being at the Augusta National. I am not a golfer but I certainly appreciate the landscaping. I have painted several commission pieces of the beauty that surrounds the course. It is this reason that I chose the Amen Corner for one of the boxes."

Vines

Rooted in the same vicinity, vines grow upward, beginning to entangle at great heights, creating collective patterns, impossible done alone.
