Robert Edington. While a State Representative he wrote the bill that established the University of South Alabama, Mobile Historic Development Commission and Battleship Park.

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!
Love this artist!! This is one-of my favorite painting !!!
nice i am alsoMAC Member
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 .
Bro. David Lindon Harris
Thank you for your time and consideration and efforts .

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
It was great talking to you, thank you for letting us know of Nancy’s exhibit!! I can’t wait to see the quilts in person, the photographs are amazing.
Where are the artworks location online?
Do you know when your LUSH 101 classes be able to start?
My name is Selena Garza. I recently moved into a home in Mobile that had been occupied by the same family since it was built in the 70s. They left a piano in the house and inside of the piano chair I found an old recital program from May 2, 1953 at Bernheim Hall. If you guys are interested in preserving and archiving this piece of history I would be happy to pass it along. You can call or email me. Thank you.

i would like to buy a ticket attend
Eric is not just talented, he is gifted. He has ability, wit,
and work ethic. He will be very successful when ( if ) he grows up.
This is a beautiful traditional quilt. The center medallion was designed and hand appliquéd by Bonnie Z, a Guild member. Many of the members made squares and member Ramona Thompson custom quilted it. All of this was accomplished under the leadership of Lamoyne K and Quilt Show Chairman Peggy Stone. We are excited to be having the first area Quilt Show after COVID-19. Having had much more time to piece, appliqué and quilt you will be treated to see some spectacular quilts at the Festival of Quilts “Back to Traditions.” See you August 20 or 21, 2021 at Abba Shrine Center 7770 Hitt Road.

Fairhope’s Corey Swindle
is ready to use his talent to recognize Mobile’s best athletes.
By Joey Warner
A life size statue of Hank Aaron is on display at the Mobile Arts Council Gallery next door to the Saenger Theatre in downtown Mobile.
“Being the hometown guy, and having been involved in baseball my entire life, this project is especially near to my heart,”
Corey Swindle wrote in a message.
Corey Swindle of Fairhope, Alabama along with four more finalists have submitted their work and it is on display at the Arts Council Gallery.
One of the talented experts will be chosen as the artist to achieve and fulfill this amazing project.
Six nine-foot-tall bronze statues with pedestals, portraying Mobile’s five Hall of Fame baseball players and one Hall of Fame football player will be erected in the Hall of Fame Courtyard in Cooper Riverside Park next to the Convention Center at the foot of Government Street in
Former Major League baseball players Hank Aaron; Leroy “Satchel” Paige, Willie McCovey, Ozzie Smith, Billy Williams and former Houston Oiler and National Football League player Robert Brazile are the first players to be recognized with more members of the Mobile Sports Hall of Fame to follow.
Swindle’s son, Brody, is a rising star on the baseball field for Coach Matt Limbaugh at Bayside Academy High School in Daphne, AL.
It is evident Corey has his heart and soul in to this opportunity.
As baseball and sports enthusiasts from Mobile and Baldwin Counties as well as the surrounding area, we should rally around and support Corey Swindle with hope he will be the lucky one chosen as the creator of these unique sculptures.
“My team feels we have a great shot at this project and would be honored to be apart of this awesome project,” Swindle wrote.
Check out Corey’s work in the images of Hank Aaron.
I am looking to host a medical school graduation party for approximately 100 people and was wondering if you might have any spaces that could accommodate us. If so, please let me know what you can offer us and the various price points.
Thank you very much!
