Have you ever admired the murals on 10th Street off of MLK Boulevard? Though tucked away, the art beautifies + brightens EPB’s substation fence.
And while you may not have guessed it, half of the murals painted during last year’s 10th Street Mural Project were created by first-time muralists — the project serves as a platform for local artists to build their skills, launch their careers, and share their voices with the community.
This year (the third of the four-year project), chosen artists will paint their murals on the substation wall facing the alley behind Memo’s Grill. Artists 18+ who live or work in the EPB service area are asked to submit:
- At least five image samples
- Vision statement
- Initial visual sketch of their concept that aligns with the theme — “Traditions on MLK,” highlighting family traditions throughout the years in Chattanooga’s MLK Boulevard area
For more details, contact Vanessa Willis with EPB — in the meantime, check out some of the murals from years past below.
