Posted April 19, 2014 by Taylor Kigar
To get ready for Savannah College of Art and Design's Sidewalk Arts Festival (April 26), we're taking a visit back to some photos from previous years. The festival is a nod to an art form as old as the 16th century, but we're bringing it into the present like never before.

Mohawk Flooring is one of the latest employers to create a place that’s as imaginative as it is functional; that speaks to its history as one of the world’s most successful manufacturers of floor coverings.
