Alpharetta-resident Diane Sylvester Grecco, working with Alpharetta Recreation, Parks & Cultural Services, the Alpharetta Planning and Zoning Division, City Council and Mayor have seen their efforts come to fruition to bring a new mural along a 3-section brick wall of the AlphaLoop west of the Thompson Street Park and alongside the Midwick neighborhood.
Alpharetta native, Cecilia Gonzalez recently completed the mural. Gonzalez, a graduate of Alpharetta High School, earned a B.S. degree in Visualization with a minor in Art & Architectural History at Texas A&M University. Currently living in New Orleans, Gonzalez will be returning to Alpharetta soon for a proclamation ceremony.
Door-to-door and GoFundMe campaigns led by Grecco raised funds for the artwork, with those donating receiving a chance to win raffle prizes donated by Avalon, City Center and downtown Alpharetta businesses.
