GUIN — Local artist Missy Miles will begin renovating the “Freedom Eagle” mural in downtown Guin this week. Miles originally painted the mural back in 2008, but over time, some of the colors and finer details have faded in the sun.
The mural is painted on the side of the Marion County Banking building overlooking Guin Memorial Park on the corner of U.S, Highway 43 and U.S. Highway 278.

HAMILTON — One of the most amazing artists in Marion County is Hamilton’s Missy Miles. Miles’ work can be found on many of the beautiful murals in each of the county’s cities and along the Alabama Mural Trail. Miles is also well known for her incredible gourd art.
But Miles also does so much more. She creates incredible acrylic, watercolors and Plein-Air paintings. Her artistic eye also helps her capture amazing photographs.
