Greensboro, NC - Greensboro artist William Mangum has been preserving North Carolina sights for over thirty-two years. To date he has created over 3,000 works of art.
Mangum's career began during his senior year of college at The University of North Carolina Greensboro, when he painted a present for his mother at Christmas. Soon after, he held his first exhibition and quickly sold every painting.
Now he is embarking on "Blue Ridge Inspiration" an artistic tribute to the parkway's 75th anniversary. Construction on the parkway began on September in1935. All told he has created 50 originals, and will debut them at his studio on Lawndale Drive. The celebration runs from May 21 - June 12, 2010.
