Scarlett and Rhett get a facelift



John Christian, who painted the mural at the corner of Spring Street and Robert Toombs Avenue, has refreshed the Gone With The Wind mural on the Retro building on Spring Street. He is the “brains and brawn” behind the Georgia Mural Trail, of which Washington is a part, according to Doug Abramson, who owns the building. Abramson commissioned Christian to do the repainting last spring but Christian said it just took this long to get to it. The 20x16-foot mural was originally painted in 2008 by the artist Chilwood. Christian also put a top coat on it to seal it so that now it will last much longer than the original. The restoration project took most of six days, Christian said, and now it will be part of the Georgia Mural Trail, accessible at http://www.Facebook.com/georgiamuraltrail.
