Robert Edington. While a State Representative he wrote the bill that established the University of South Alabama, Mobile Historic Development Commission and Battleship Park. He has served on over 20 boards. He served as an attorney for more than 60 years. He was responsible for the ships coming during every Mardi Gras. He has been Mobilian of the Year and Veteran of the Year.
Henry deTonti……Old Mobile’s ambassador to native tribes, Circa 1703-1705. “Bra de Fer” (Iron Hand) was LaSalle’s chief officer before joining the Bienville brothers in tne founding of Mobile. The trading agreements he negotiated literally insured the early survival of the colony. He died of yellow fever in 1705.
I have reenacted deTonti at Mobile historic events for 15 years.
LeMoyne Brothers! Bienville was the middle bother of three involved in the founding of our Mobile. Note: Never construct emails before your morning coffee!

Great roster of Arts Warriors/Winners!
Great job !
There are a lot of Buildings here in Mobile Alabama that needs be spruced up . Older Buildings that needs to be put back in to use . Homeless work training shelters would catch 2 fish with a single hook . That in itself is a multiple bonus for everyone that lives in the Mobile County area . Even the least able people can become a benefit to themselves again , and to our entire family community as a whole .
City revenues would be increased dramatically in short order , and in the long term we all would gain a much preferred good name .
Please consider this , every time you get together ? A strong foundation starts with compassion , and builds by faithfulness .

I LOVE this virtual Artwalk!! Great job, everyone, & thank all who participated in putting it together & sharing the unique talents of Mobile!
Thank you! Appreciate all of the downtown businesses who are participating and all of the effort to organize this unique event.
I have several of your CD’s—-I love the Marreros!
Alright! Full disclosure! I’m admittedly somewhat biased as Eric and I have been friends since high school! He had many more friends than I because he spent so many years there! On top of being a dear friend and a kind soul, he is obviously a multi talent! He has certainly helped make any project I have included him in a huge success! He is well-deserving of this award!
Those sound bites have a great feel…! Congrats, Eric!
I’ve known Eric since High School. Not only does he play a assortment of musical instruments, he is a singer, and a Comedian! He’s played with the Plum Loco Band and many others around the Gulf Coast.
The Mobile Arts Council made a Excellent Choice!
I am proud to have the opportunity to play drums in “Tony B and the Opperators” with Eric. He is a very talented musician and a great guy.
I have several of his CD’s done by Eric and his wife Karin. What a great talented couple. Keep up the good work Eric.
We let me glom on while you’re hot in the news. I listened to Eric at a restaurant years ago playing solo with guitar. I was knocked out at this
highly refined talent. That’s all folks…Ben Mathis, cousin of Ken Matthews.
Eric is an amazing talent. Hoping one day we can do a project together!
I will be dropping off one piece, 30×30 ish
I’m a local artist. I would love two or three (or as many that you will allow) thin slices to paint on. A series. I would love to paint on a piece of history from our beautiful city. Please consider me. Thank you. I love Mobile
