Glass House Collective combats crime with brushes and paint

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

The Glass House Collective gathered a team of local volunteers that hit the streets to combat crime by using brushes and buckets of paint.

The backdrop they used included buildings, condemned homes and any location with visible markings. 

They turned trashed walls into stunning pieces throughout East Chattanooga, along Martin Luther King Boulevard, Ridgedale and Highland Park.

Peter Murphy says, "not covering graffiti is glorifying and advertising a criminal organization and I don't know anyone that wants that in their neighborhood."

A lot more work needs to be done to keep the scenic city in top notch shape.

If you would like to get involved in volunteering to help with the cleanup efforts contact Chattanooga Neighborhood Enterprise (423)756-6201 or email them here info@cneinc.org.
