Brand New Historic Orleans Mural Unveiled

A brief dedication ceremony was held April 24th for the new historic Downtown Orleans Mural created by Chloe Houston, senior art student at Orleans High School.  Chloe created the idea in art class last year and her design was chosen for the mural.  Her idea was also the 2024 Dogwood Logo and was featured on the Dogwood Tabloid.  The mural is located in the Gateway Park across from the Orleans Bandstand (east side of square). 


The mural was designed in art class under the instruction of Dr. Leah Morgan, edited and printed by Nikki Deckard of HD Graphix, and placed in its downtown location by town employees.  It was funded in part by a Simmons/Tegarden grant from the Orange County Community Foundation.  The mural project was also made possible in part by the Brown County Community Foundation and the Indiana Arts Commission, which receives support from the State of Indiana and the National Endowment for the Arts.


Several were in attendance for the ceremony to help honor artist Chloe Houston on her creation including Orleans town and chamber officials.  Also present to take part in the dedication activities was Sen. Eric Koch.
