Jon Osborne is a self-taught Contemporary Artist in Birmingham, AL who works mainly in acrylics. Jon holds an Associates degree in Graphic Communications from Trenholm State Technical College and has recently started creating art full time which has been his passion since early childhood. The principal themes of Jon's work are unity, awareness, and identity. He combines these elements to explore issues surrounding the ideas of understanding human experience. Jon uses his unique techniques of storytelling, psychology, theory, and meditation to illustrate his view of the uncontrollable world around us while seeing the beauty in it.
Previously, Jon's style of work has been described as "bold" and "intriguing," while using symbolism, hidden words and thought-provoking inspirations to bring awareness of our perceptions. Osborne also goes by the moniker of "Jon of Art." Recently, Jon won the Joe Piper Distinction Award at the 2019 Magic City Art Connection and was a participating artist at the 48th Kentuck Arts Festival 2019. He is also an artist at Grand Bohemian Gallery in Mountain Brook, AL. As Jon's career emerges, he looks forward to teaching art, using art in community outreach and creating a foundation that supports the Arts.
Award-winning urban oasis.
Railroad Park is a Public/Private Partnership. That means it relies on funds from many sources. Keeping the park open, lush and full of activity requires municipal dollars, corporate donations and individual contributions. It takes everyone working together.
Since opening in 2010, Railroad Park has transformed the mindset and physical landscape of Birmingham. Railroad Park has been a catalyst for economic development, downtown living and fun. More than 600,000 residents and guests of the Magic City will participate in Park programs and activities this year. Railroad Park continues to generate positive local and national publicity for our region.
And Railroad Park doesn't work without you.
Have you been prouder of Birmingham since Railroad Park opened, or had more fun in the city since we've been here? If you've taken a jog, eaten a lunch, had a play date, a yoga class, a meeting, an afternoon nap or taken a shortcut to a Baron's game at Regions Field, please consider making a donation. Any amount makes a difference. Any amount makes Railroad Park programs and operations possible.
