The Pocosin Arts Living Wall Mural is a reflection of the surrounding community and the local landscape. The festival participants are incorporated into an arts experience which opens a dialogue with the leading artist. This year celebrates not only the 50th anniversary of the NC Arts Council, but also the 350th anniversary of the 4 original Albemarle counties. This years mural theme is "Hearts Delight" which is the title the area was given by the founding settlers.
