After searching for a local student to submit entries for an original mural, there is now a new piece of outdoor artwork at Alpharetta’s mixed-use development, Halcyon.

A design by Maryann Garrido, a rising senior at Alliance Academy for Innovation in Cumming, was selected from more than 40 entries from local students.

The artwork, entitled “Together in Harmony,” is now complete at the Forsyth County development.

The design features “nature's music along with the live music families enjoy on Halcyon’s Village Green,” according to a press release.

“Halcyon is a creative and inspiring community that bonds friends and families together,” Garrido previously said in a statement. “I wanted to create a design where people could make and cherish memories when visiting Halcyon, and I’m excited to be able to represent my Latino community through my art. I hope visitors, old and new, are inspired to take photos with this symbolic portrait behind them.”
