PIGGOTT, AR (KAIT) - The city of Piggott may soon have some new artwork on display downtown.

Nearly 15 years ago, a mural was painted downtown, but it's looking a little frail.

Piggott resident Joe Cole is leading the mural project which is being funded through donations.
He hopes to add several other murals across town to highlight Piggott's rich history.
Piggott Mayor Jim Poole said he hopes the murals will draw tourists in.

"If we get them to stop for a minute, take a look maybe they'll a little business here in town," said Poole.  "We're proud of our town and that's why we're doing this going to try to get all the support we can."

Mayor Poole said he hopes by the end of 2018, several murals will be added to the town.
