“West End Remembers” Mural Commissioned by City of Atlanta

Written on April 20, 2009 at 10:05 am, by Amelia

On Friday Creative Loafing published a blog post about the commission of a new mural to be painted in the West End, just a few blocks from here.

The mural is slated to be the very first of what will hopefully be many public art projects incorporated into the Beltline.

The intersection, sort of, of Lawton and White Streets

As you may recall, the Beltline broke ground first in the West End.  A lovely bike path has been installed, complete with a new park and the beginnings of an arboretum.  Right now, the trees are a little weenie.  It’s not their fault.

As projects like the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Porgram have long proven, murals can be a great way to give folks ownership of public space and connect individuals with their communities .  Plus, they’re pretty.

When Lain and I went on the Beltline tour a few weeks ago, there was a lot of talk of art being incorporated into the project.  And now it’s starting!  So close to us, no less.

Good work, Beltline.  I still like you so much.

  1. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
