Mural City

 


Originally a cotton warehouse, this 70 year old building is home to all of the productions put on by the Colquitt-Miller Arts Council. If the paintings on the outside of the building do not get your attention, just wait until you go inside. Inside Cotton Hall you will find a top-of-the-line Storytelling Museum that will captivate your attention for hours. A gift shop offers Swamp Gravy souvenirs and a concession stand that makes the best popcorn in the Southland! You will see Colquitt's own Cotton Hall quilters working on their most recent quilt, which is raffled off each year.

Your enjoyment will continue once you walk through the theatre doors. Our 284 seat theatre is made up of over three stages and is definitely a one-of-a-kind theatre. Our plays are performed all around the theatre.

Native American Monument

Georgia's official monument to America's indigenous people is located in Colquitt on Highway 27. The 27-foot masterpiece sculpted by "humanitarian" artist, Peter Toth, pays tribute to the spirit of the Native Americans who inhabited this land long before Europeans arrived. The sculpture is carved from a red cedar log.

Hungarian born, Toth began a quest 30 + years ago to pay tribute to Native Americans by creating giant sculptures entitled "Whispering Giants" in each of the 50 states. He has completed almost 70 of the huge works of art.

Toth chose Colquitt because of the spirit of hospitality, friendship, and cooperation he experienced when he visited almost 30 years ago.

Swamp Gravy 

          

The true flavor of the South is served up in Swamp Gravy, Georgia's Folk Life Play. Swamp Gravy gleans the comedy and tragedy of daily life from family stories, tall tales and folklore from Southwest Georgia, and true stories that celebrate the culture that is uniquely rural Georgia. Swamp Gravy promises to make you laugh and cry as these real life stories are woven into a spellbinding play year after year.
Swamp Gravy is professionally written, directed, and designed. With a new play produced each year in October, Swamp Gravy continues the Southern tradition of storytelling. The plays are performed by a cast of over 100 community volunteers.

Swamp Gravy also contains a generous dose of original and traditional music and dance that creates a grand scale stage production that is sure to please old and young alike.

Swamp Gravy's home is a 70-year-old cotton warehouse aptly named Cotton Hall. This fully equipped facility maintains its rustic flavor while offering state-of-the-art lighting, eye appealing set design and multi-level staging. From rafters to floor, the design of the theater makes every seat in Cotton Hall a good one.

You can contact Swamp Gravy at 229-758-5450 or visit www.swampgravy.com  for more information.
