Sarah J. Blankenship | Mural Artist
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.
