The Community Art wall has expanded to both sides of the breezeway that connects the airport to the parking garage on the second level. This area displays art created by budding artists in the North Alabama community and is a reminder that anyone can be an artist. This quarter the Community Art Wall is featuring a series entitled "Visit North Alabama" with works from the Pictures of Hope Program based out of Scottsboro, AL. Pictures of Hope is an art program developed by Jackson County Drug Court and Family Wellness Court, along with artist Sonya Clemons, to benefit the Recovery Community in Jackson County.
