JEKYLL OAK WOOD CONTEST AND AUCTION
The live oak tree, which was named the Jekyll Oak, in our Jekyll Square downtown had to be taken down June 26th, 2016. We are commemorating the Jekyll Oak by holding the Jekyll Oak Wood Contest and Auction. Artists are welcome to paint, burn, carve, turn, or any other method of artistry with the pieces of the Jekyll Oak. There are currently 16 pieces available for carving.
