The Stone County Community Art Quilt will be dedicated on Monday, December 15th, 3:00 p.m. at the Stone County Courthouse, 323 East Cavers Ave., Wiggins. Twelve different quilt pieces were created by Stone County teams made up of community leaders including Wiggins Mayor, Joel Miles; Board of Supervisors President, Scott Strickland; local artists, and Stone County High School students. Mississippi quilter Diane Williams conducted the day-long quilt workshop. Each team created a themed piece including the timber industry, health and education, recreation, the environment, and other more. Local quilter, Marcus Weekley, integrated the twelve blocks into a beautiful quilt. The Art Quilt will be on display at the Historic Courthouse through mid-January. 

Sponsors for this project were the Bank of Wiggins, the Stone County Arts Council, MS Power Company, Stone County Economic Development Partnership and MS Gulf Coast Communty College. The public is invited to the dedication.
