AMORY, Miss. (WCBI) — A new mural is coming together in Amory thanks to a local artist. Mural artist and Amory Main Street Board member John Ward is bringing an added touch of artistic character in Amory.

Ward’s most recent project will grace the side of the Edward Jones building.

Ward says the project was inspired by a mural of an iron bridge located right here in Columbus.

The mural fuses a theme seen in other communities; emphasizing the past, but looking to the future.

The mural project is funded by a facade grant from Amory Main Street.
