EPB Unveils 10th Street Mural Artists Project

  • Thursday, June 17, 2021

EPB officials on Thursday morning introduced their completed 10th Street Mural artists project.

 

The community celebrated the dedication of the new nine-panel mural on the EPB substation wall in the MLK community.

 

The mural can be found in downtown Chattanooga at 10th and Foster Street.

 

Speakers and atendees included Chattanooga Mayor Tim Kelly, ArtsBuild President James McKissic, EPB President & CEO David Wade, 10th Street Mural Artists, and Community Partners. 

 

The theme is, “The Soul of MLK” – how artists visualize the heartbeat and soul of MLK in arts, music and culture.

An outside group of community stakeholders selected the following nine artists and their submissions based on the work’s artistic value, clarity of thought, community reflection and relevance to the theme.

 

Jaclyn Anderson – Barbershop Vignette

Rondell Crier – Good Fish

Josiah Golson – Head in the Clouds of History

Keelah Jackson-Harris – Dr. King’s 9th Street Reverie

Julius Hubbard – Dare to Dream

Harlan Lovestone – A Dream Rises

Madison Myers – Interracial Couple Dancing

Lauren O’Neill – The Quilt

Rachel Veal – Street Music

 

A number of community partners made this project possible including ArtsBuild, Association of Visual Arts, Bessie Smith Cultural Center, City of Chattanooga’s Public Art Chattanooga, Chattanooga Community Kitchen, MLK Neighborhood Association, RISE Chattanooga, River City Company, Urban League of Greater Chattanooga and UTC.
