Arts and Culture Brown Bag Luncheon and Every Day is Earth Day Mural

The “Every Day is Earth Day” mural will be installed on the Georgetown Municipal Complex in time for Earth Day 2024 on April 22. This exciting mural aims to showcase artistic talent while promoting awareness of important themes related to watershed protection and water conservation. The mural artist selected is Sarah Blankenship for her design titled “Watershed.”

In keeping with the theme of April’s Earth Day, the Arts and Culture Brown Bag Luncheon—scheduled for noon April 11 at the Georgetown Public Library—will feature a panel discussion of design and landscape design professionals on trends and strategies for water conservation in landscape and building design. The panel discussion will be followed by updates on arts and culture programs in Georgetown and the downtown Cultural District.
