See iconic Clarksville images as you drive north toward the Fort Campbell Army Post, and likewise, images that represent Fort Campbell as you head into Clarksville. This two-sided mural can be found on the railroad bridge near Gate 2 above Fort Campbell Boulevard. Through a process of public submissions to the Montgomery County Public Art Ad Hoc Committee, chosen artist Paul Jones drew and painted the original artwork by hand and had it turned into a vector file that was printed as a vinyl wrap. Jones, originally from Upstate New York, came to Clarksville to visit friends in April 2014, fell in love with the community. He made the permanent move by July of that year. “Painting is something I love to do when I’m not working at Trane or hanging out with family. My goal with this project was to tie in the most symbolic images from the community like the brickwork from the Historic Courthouse, Wilma Rudolph, and the Cumberland River. I’m honored to contribute to the community and Fort Campbell through my artwork," Jones said. The artwork was commissioned by the Montgomery County Public Art Ad Hoc Committee, established in 2017 and comprised of community citizens who are interested in bringing public art to Clarksville, Montgomery County. Funding for the designated projects comes from a percentage of specific Montgomery County Government bonds.
