New mural unveiled in East Chattanooga
Mark Making's newest mural, “Pollinators,” is located at 1800 Roanoke Avenue. It was created by male teens from Hope for the Inner City. The word hope is about believing in better tomorrows that can be pollinated by today's thoughts and actions. Organizers say the young men have taken ownership of this site and designed and painted this mural to beautify their neighborhood.
Project partners include Hope for the Inner City, Glass House Collective and lead Mark Making artist Mark Bradley-Shoup. Funding was provided in part by Tennessee Arts Commission and the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga.
Mark Making describes itself as an organization that empowers individuals and transforms communities through professionally-led public art projects, with a focus on the underserved.
