True Colors Mural at Library featuring faces and landmarks of Clayton

The Hocutt-Ellington Memorial Library is filled with art and artists – every book on the shelves is a work of art! But aside from books, the Clayton Library also displays art of the traditional sort.  Our marque artwork is a 10-foot tall, 27-foot long permanent mural on the hallway wall connecting the library’s main collection to the south wing.  “True Colors,” painted by artist Jim Brown depicts the life and times of Clayton and was the Town’s second public art mural.  Unveiled in 2010, it colorfully displays historic scenes and people of Clayton community.  See if you recognize anyone – many are based on real Claytonites!

And don’t forget about the History Room, where we have a different exhibit every quarter! The hallway walls and display cases highlight a variety of documents, photos, books and maps that capture the rich history of our Clayton community.
