Art project connects the community with downtown Kinston

KINSTON, N.C. (WNCT) – An art project that hopes to connect the community with downtown Kinston is now complete.

Thomas Sayr developed earth cast barn fronts on Blount Street after a tobacco warehouse used to stand in the same spot. Community members say they’re excited.

“I hope it gets people more culturally aware of arts for the art program. I would like to see more arts programs here in eastern North Carolina,” Kawanda Wilkins said.

The installation should be open to the public by the New Year.
