If you’re driving around downtown Barnesville, Georgia, you might be surprised to cut through a side street only to see a mural with a cheerful woman representative of past times welcoming you to Wind Gap, Missouri. “Missouri?” you might wonder to yourself, “I thought I was in Georgia!”
Don’t worry, Market Street is not a wormhole transporting you from one state to another. Barnesville is one of the many small towns in Georgia used for filming locations, and the Wind Gap Mural is a leftover from HBO’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects. HBO hired Andrew Henry, an artist and Barnesville native, to create this mural and others on set in the summer of 2017.
