Some also include natural phenomena in physical features such as mountains, rock formations, rivers, and waterfalls, which also be chosen as landmarks if they have special historical, architectural, or cultural significance.

“Landmarks are not just tourist attractions, they can also serve as a commemoration of a remarkably important event,” Privett says. “This allows us, and generations to come, to remember great cultures and events of the past that is worthy to record in history.”

Privett is known for his use of bright colors and unusual paintings. He is currently President of the Downtown Artist’s Co-op located at 96 Franklin Street in downtown Clarksville, Tennessee.
