Where in Carolina Country is This?
The August “Where Is This” photo by Abby Seavert features a painted tobacco barn located at the intersection of Red Hill and Nickens Roads in Cameron. The barn is one of many painted by artist and Cameron native David Ellis. He gathered a group of New York City and Tokyo artists who traveled to Moore County 17 years ago to reinvigorate these old barns with art. Ellis and his team brought a much-needed splash of color to the area in an effort known as the Barnstormer Murals. Farming equipment and tractor trailers were also hit with splashes of color. The winning entry chosen at random from all correct submissions came from Mimi Gannaway of Charlotte, a Union Power member.
