"INTERSECTION of ART & HISTORY"

Sunday, April 14th
4:00pm

at Cauley Creek Park
7255 Bell Road, Johns Creek

Join us for an outdoor program at Cauley Creek Park near the new Rogers Bridge where history and art intersect.

  • Learn about the fascinating history of the people and events of the park's land covering 200 years from the Cherokee to the 1900s.
  • Then we'll tour and hear about the two pieces of public art created from salvaged steel of the historic Rogers Bridge (one on the Johns Creek side and one across the bridge on the Duluth side).  Also learn about the other 6 pieces of public art using Rogers Bridge salvaged steel that will be placed around Johns Creek.

Program Update
Good news - weather looks good for Sunday afternoon, but in the 80s.
  • We'll be in the sun for most of this program, so recommend hat, sunscreen, and water bottle.
  • It is a 5-6 minute walk from the closest parking area to the bridge and arch sculpture where we will gather. It's flat terrain on a concrete sidewalk except a short mulch path at the end.
Directions
From Bell Road:
  1. Enter Cauley Creek Park at the Bell Road roundabout (entrance is opposite from gated Old Homestead Trl).
  2. At the T, turn right (toward "Fields").
  3. Continue on that road. You will see a parking lot on the left, then the playing fields, then an orange-green-blue playground.
  4. Park as close to the playground end of the parking lot as possible.
The walk to the bridge (about a 5-minute walk from the playground):
  1. From your car, walk to the colorful playground.
  2. You will see the new large Rogers Bridge in the distance.
  3. Follow the concrete sidewalk toward the bridge keeping the playing fields on your left and the open meadow on your right.
  4. Where the sidewalk ends at the batting cages, take the short mulch path toward the bridge

Among his many other positions, Wayne was a founder of the Cultural Arts Alliance and its board president. We mourn his passing, missing his leadership in the arts community and his friendship.

Below are links to media coverage of J. Wayne Baughman's life and achievements.

November 29, 2023: Arts Atlanta, "Obit: J. Wayne Baughman, 'Mr. Oratorio' and founder of Johns Creek Symphony", by Lien Johnson

"In the symphony of life, J. Wayne Baughman played many roles — conductor, music director, singer, teacher, community activist, counselor, father, friend. On November 9, at the age of 77, he found his peaceful finale after a brief yet courageous encounter with pancreatic cancer. Those who knew him remember not only his exceptional musical brilliance but also the warmth of his gentle and loving nature. He left an indelible mark on hearts and melodies alike." 

November 23, 2023: Johns Creek Herald, Appen Media, "Orchestra announces passing of founder, maestro", by Amber Perry


A private burial was held November 17, 2023. Later, in 2024, there will be a public memorial service to honor Maestro Baughman.
