Athens has long been charmed by its ginkgo trees. Starting in 2018, the Project Ginkgo mosaic project ensured that the distinctive leaves beautify the west end of Downtown year round. Local artist Krysia Ara completed the second 2019 mosaic The Morton Theatre on Washington Street. Krysia invited community members and friends to help apply glazes that capture the characteristic hues. Project Ginkgo is funded by the Athens Downtown Development Authority.
