The Red Building (Thomasville Cemetery signs)

thomasville cemetery - mural - blackcattips 2002

I painted some folky hand-lettered signs this week for the Thomasville Cemetery Restoration Project. It has been ignored and disrespected for a long time until a couple clean-ups in recent years. The graves date back to around the Civil War. There are very few grave stones to be found, yet at least 235 people were buried there.

There is a meet-n-greet this weekend, Saturday November 8 at noon. Check out their facebook page for more info.

The Thomasville Cemetery is about a block off Moreland Avenue, a mile north of I-285.

Here are a few more photos.
