2021 Christmas Windows

Group Project painting 73 windows downtown Union Springs

73 Windows Downtown Union Springs

Christmas Windows Unite Union Springs

By: Stephanie Wingard


When the Bullock County Art Guild set out to paint Christmas scenes on the windows of businesses downtown, no one could have expected what blessings would come from this endeavor. Originally, we hoped to paint cute Christmas scenes like Santa, reindeer, or snowmen on the windows of ten or so businesses, and with a small budget, it was all we could do. Before we knew it more business owners were asking us to paint their windows. As the list began to grow, donations started pouring in and helped us with our increasing supply costs. All of the art guild members who participated in painting the windows donated their time and found that the fellowship of working on this project together and the outpouring of support from the community was priceless. The appreciation we received from citizens was incredibly heartwarming. Vehicles would stop in the middle of the street, and they would holler to us, “Thank you for what you’re doing, it looks so good.” We had many folks walk up to us and say how much they loved what we were doing. Something magical was happening in Union Springs. As of now, seventy-three windows have been painted all over town. We are grateful that the owner of the Fair Company building, Lee Mahaffey, allowed us to paint the entire front of his building and to Mr. Mike Green for not only allowing us to paint on the windows of his building but for suggesting that we could possibly do other projects on his windows like for the Field Trials. This is such a great idea, and we are looking forward to the opportunity. If the Bullock County Art Guild’s mission was to enhance the Christmas spirit in Union Springs and unite the citizens as one people who simply enjoy the holiday season, then we would say, mission accomplished.
