In addition to the natural beauty that Dillsboro has to offer, the town also has a rich history. Muralist Doreyl Ammons Cain is working on a mural depicting Dillsboro in the 1880s that will be proudly displayed in the heart of historic Dillsboro, near the Jarrett House.
This project is another example of the collaborative spirit of Dillsboro. The town is helping to build the frame and there will be an unveiling of the finished mural on October 5 at 10 a.m. during Colorfest.
Colorfest is an art festival that was formed to increase community awareness of the talented artists in western North Carolina. The festival is produced by Catch the Spirit of Appalachia, Inc. with support from the Dillsboro Merchants Association, Jackson County Visual Arts Association, the Jackson County Arts Council and the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce.
