Urban Brilliance: Atlanta’s Living Walls

By: Shelby Adamson

Atlanta is a colorful metropolis with whimsical and artistic attributes everywhere you look. We’re especially proud of the Living Walls project, which is a city-wide public art movement that provides a platform for inter-community dialogue. We collaborated with beloved blogger Sara Longsworth, who is somewhat of an expert on Living Walls, to select our favorite murals from around the city.
