Mooresville Artist Guild in Mooresville, NC, Works with The Dale Jr. Foundation to Raise Funds for Mooresville Depot Renovation

May 31, 2013

Two key players in the local community, The Dale Jr. Foundation and the Mooresville Artist Guild, are joining forces to support the renovation of the historic Mooresville Depot in Mooresville, NC, with a unique online fundraising event called the Dale Jr. Picture Mosaic.

The Dale Jr. Picture Mosaic will be a collection of 8,800 images submitted by fans of Earnhardt Jr. Once assembled, the collage will make up an eight foot by six foot mural. When viewed from a distance, the primary image of Earnhardt Jr. becomes visible, while close examination reveals that the image is comprised of numerous smaller photographs.

The donations from the mosaic will be used to support the Mooresville Artist Guild’s project to renovate the Historic Mooresville Depot, better known as “Race City USA” and home to JR Motorsports.

“Since 1863, the Historic Mooresville Depot has been the cornerstone on which the Town of Mooresville was built,” said Leo Gordon, Treasurer of the Guild and Chairperson for the renovation project. “It brought commerce to the area which led to people moving into the area. In 1973, The Depot took a new role when the Town of Mooresville leased the building to the Mooresville Artist Guild who converted part of the building to a Visual Arts Center, thus becoming the cornerstone of art for the region.

“The building needs major repairs and must conform to ADA requirements if we are to meet the growing needs of the Guild and the region. With community leaders like Dale Jr. and The Dale Jr. Foundation adding their support, we can make the Depot something special.”

To become part of the JR Nation history and have your picture included in the Dale Jr. Mosaic, an easy to use, interactive web site has been created at ( The process is simple. For a donation of just $8.80, you can include a photograph of yourself or friends to pay tribute to Earnhardt Jr. for his accomplishments on the track, as an entrepreneur and community leader. These photos, combined with thousands of others will create the completed mural.

Shortly after uploading your photo(s), participants will be incorporated into the online mosaic and mural, and receive a special access code to view their photo.

“The Dale Jr. Picture Mosaic will be unveiled at JR Motorsports in mid-December of this year,” said Lauren Caldwell, Project Manager of The Dale Jr. Foundation.  ”We’ll focus a lot of our social media efforts around it so fans can share in the experience. We are truly excited to help make a difference in our community with the revitalization of the Mooresville Artist Guild.”
