Sarah J. Blankenship | Mural Artist

sarah blankenship

Sarah J. Blankenship, a dedicated muralist, has been passionately contributing to Georgetown’s artistic landscape since 2018. Prior to her full-time muralist career, she worked in various roles, including the Arts & Culture Coordinator for the City of Georgetown, faux finisher and muralist at In Your Space Collaborative Arts, and Project Design Assistant at the Texas Historical Commission for 13 years.

Sarah’s commitment to Georgetown goes beyond her artistic endeavors. She has volunteered on Georgetown’s Historic and Architectural Review Commission (HARC) and Main Street Program. Alongside her husband, Anthony Blankenship, who volunteers on the GISD school board, they’ve been proud residents of Georgetown since 2003, raising two kids, Adrian and Cassidy, aged 15 & 13.

Her latest achievement is the completion of the ‘Welcome to Georgetown’ mural at the Visitor’s Center, fulfilling her goal of painting on every side of the square. Notable businesses around the square that bear her artistic touch include Tejas, Divine Treasures, Roots, Kilwins, Barrels & Amps, Omnia Outdoors, and the Visitor’s Center. Beyond the square, Blankenship has left her mark on numerous establishments, including the Palace Theatre, Razmataz Salon, Kork Wine Bar, 600 Degrees, Grace Heritage Church, and the Little Lemon in the library.

One of her most well-known Georgetown murals is the ‘Greetings from Georgetown Texas/Red Poppy Capital’ mural at Gus’s drug, a project that involved the collaborative efforts of 151 local residents. For a comprehensive list of mural locations, visit her website at Sarah J. Blankenship’s Mural Locations. Her website’s main page showcases a stunning visual portfolio of her work: Sarah J.

National Travel and Tourism Week 2021: Georgetown Convention and Visitors Bureau Celebrates the ‘Power of Travel’

Celebrated annually the first full week in May, National Travel and Tourism Week(NTTW) was created by Congress in 1983 to elevate the economic power of travel in the U.S. The 38th annual NTTW (May 2-8) arrives at an opportune moment to recognize the importance to
the U.S. economy of initiating a post-pandemic travel recovery.

“NTTW takes on a special significance this year as the travel industry looks to rebound quickly from the pandemic and accelerate recovery efforts,” said U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow. “The past year was incredibly challenging, but we saw the full power of the travel industry on display in the way we united and supported one another through this crisis.”

“Before the pandemic, travel generated $2.6 trillion in economic output, supported 17 million American jobs and delivered a $51 billion trade surplus to the U.S.—evidence of the outsized role the industry will play in America’s
broader economic recovery,” said Dow.

Georgetown Convention and Visitors Bureau is saluting the power of travel by showcasing a few of the many FACES OF GEORGETOWN TOURISM. Follow us on Visit Georgetown, Texas Facebook as we feature our tourism partners throughout NTTW.

Please visit ustravel.org/NTTW to learn more about National Travel and Tourism Week.
