Help Make the 4th Street Mural a Reality

The Maysville Commission on Human Rights presents the 4th Street Mural Project: Wall of Legends – the first mural dedicated to honoring Maysville’s black leaders.

After a year of planning, the Commission on Human Rights and artist Kelcie Johnson are set to begin work on the 4th Street Mural Project, but they can’t do it without help from the community.

The Maysville-Mason County Arts Commission has pledged $2,500 in matching funds, and the HelpingSomeone Review Committee has pledged funding in the amount of $3,500, contingent upon meeting the goal project goal of $10,350. That puts the project just $4,350 away from that goal!

Donate now to be a part of this exciting project that will honor those who have contributed so much to Maysville: Educators and social service leaders like Prof. William H. Humphrey, Ida M. Ross, Ethel Foley, John and Charlton Fields, Jerry Gore, E.M. Clement, Kathy Lofton, and Gwendolyn French; civic and service leaders like Florence K. Morton Norman, Theodore M. Berry Sr., Amo Peters, Frances Perry Hall, Arthur Tipton, Pat Moore, and Ron Rice; business owners, artists, and entertainers like William “Doc” Perry, Joseph W. “Sapp” Humphrey, Dave Ross, George Jones, Dr. Robert French, Lyda Lewis, and The Brickhouse Band.
