RISE Chattanooga announces they will again co-sponsor a mural project that brings in 25 artists from around the country to work their “art magic” in downtown Chattanooga. The Burnin’ Bridges Mural Jam will be located in the Alton Park Community on Oakland Avenue between West 43rd and 45th Streets. Chattanooga artist SEVEN assembled the diverse group of professional artists who will be painting the city walls from Friday to Sunday.
Eric Finley, Jr. is the artist known as SEVEN. A Chattanooga native, his murals can be seen throughout cities in the southeastern United States, but locally his artwork can be seen from MLK Boulevard to Brainerd Road. SEVEN’s artistic philosophy is to “elevate, expand and educate on the art form and culture of street art muralism.” RISE Chattanooga says this project “aims to revitalize our communities through diverse creative place-making curated by our own artists of color.”
The public is invited to watch the artists turn the city walls into vibrant works of art during the Burnin’ Bridges Mural Jam.
