We have a new mural at the corner of Lakewood avenue and Macon drive! This painting replaces the unfinished mosaic sign that used to be the face of this monument. This new sign was designed and painted by volunteer artist Jonathan Andy Weeks.
Jonathan originally came to us hoping to volunteer on the Gould Street Homes Renovation Project. But when it was discovered that Jonathan was actually a painter of beautiful landscapes, Tina asked him to gift the community with a beautiful new mural. And boy did he! This beautiful work of art reflects the days of old and new of Lakewood Heights. In it, you can see scenes of the now gone Lakewood Fairgrounds' Ferris wheels, the historic buildings of EUE Screen Gems Studios at the Lakewood Fairgrounds, a charming old gas station, a couple of beautifully restored Victorian homes, and oak trees older than the neighborhood itself.
Jonathan Andy Weeks is a happily married father of 2 (one born just last week), a law student, and a truly gifted artist.
Thank You Jonathan for your amazing gift to our community. It truly makes me happy to come home to.
