Celebrating public art and James Brown in the birthplace of the Godfather of Soul is an easy task for Augusta. This year, as we commemorate the birthday of James Brown, we do so with a funky public art tour of murals throughout the city that celebrate his life and soulful career. 

First Stop: Papa's Got a Brand New Mural 

Artist Cole Phail captured the full essence of the Godfather of Soul with a 75-foot beautiful mural dedicated to the life and career of James Brown. 


Second Stop: Nothing Without a Woman 

"This is a man's world, this is a man's world...but it wouldn't be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl." This famous lyric comes to life with a large pink mural...the perfect addition to any selfie by local artists Leonard 'Porkchop' Zimmerman and Jay Jacobs.


Third Stop: Yes. You. Can. 

Another set of famous lyrics brought to life by local artists Leonard 'Porkchop' Zimmerman and Jay Jacobs right down the block from the colorful mural above.
