At Clermont’s Artwalk in historic downtown Clermont visitors can view a new mural, thanks to the support of Lakeridge Winery. This project will beautify the art walk landscape and foster community spirit through creativity and interaction.

Set against the backdrop of the Downtown Clermont Art Walk, the mural promises to be a centerpiece of cultural appreciation. Residents have witnessed the transformation of a blank wall into a canvas of color and expression.

Jayson Stringfellow, the creature of the local art walk scene, praised Lakeridge Winery’s dedication, stating, “I can’t say enough about the generosity and commitment Lakeridge has shown”.  This sentiment underscores Lakeridge Winery’s role not only as a producer of fine wines but also as a cornerstone of community engagement and support.

Adding a unique touch to the mural’s unveiling are custom-made wine barrels, recently delivered to the site. With these barrels, the mural is set to reach new heights, blending visual artistry with the craftsmanship that Lakeridge Winery is renowned for.
