Mark Making, a Chattanooga based non-profit organization, will unveil a 300 square foot exterior mural created by a multitude of Chattanooga’s teens battling drug addiction. The unveiling will take place on Sunday at the H*Art Gallery, 110 East Main Street at 5 p.m.
"The mural, Awakenings, was conceived of by the teens, is a made up of many unique, interesting and colorful plants and it is meant to inspire hope to all those who see it. Many of the teens who participated in conceiving, creating and painting the mural will be on hand to discuss their addictions and how this project helped put them on the road to dealing with their issues," officials said.
"The mural is the result of a partnership between Mark Making and the Scholze Center for Adolescent Treatment. The project was created because both organizations believed that combining their powers will help stop the cycle of drug dependency for Chattanooga’s most vulnerable teenagers."
