The Millennium Mural Project began in 1999 when the Colquitt-Miller Arts Council received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). The Arts Council decided that murals, over any other artistic endeavor, would impact the community the most by drawing tourists throughout the year. Colquitt currently has fifteen murals, with the Agricultural Icon Mural being the largest and most recent. In 2006, the State Legislature made our designation as Georgia’s First Mural City official. In 2010, Colquitt hosted the Global Mural, Arts and Cultural Tourism Association Conference. Colquitt is located in the Southwest corner of GA, equidistant from Dothan, AL, Tallahassee, FL, and Albany, GA.
