Atlanta, Ga. (Nov. 16, 2021) – LGE Community Credit Union recently honored hometown hero and LGE spokesperson Dansby Swanson with a mural displayed at the Marietta Square.
The mural features a portrait of Swanson in a Marietta High School letterman jacket, paying homage to LGE and Swanson’s shared Marietta roots. Swanson is a 2012 graduate of Marietta High School.
LGE commissioned the portrait through its sponsorship of Chalktoberfest – a widely-attended event hosted annually by the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art. Artist Ivann Garc painted the portrait live over the two-day Chalktoberfest event on October 9 & 10, 2021. The portrait is one of four being displayed at the Marietta square for the next year.
When asked about the painting, Swanson said, “The artist did a great job. I’m just so proud to be from Marietta and to have grown up here, and I’m honored that LGE chose to recognize my hometown roots in this way.”
LGE officially kicked off a multi-year endorsement campaign with Swanson earlier this year. The official endorsement came as the next natural step in Swanson’s relationship with LGE, where he’s been a member since 2012.
