The murals are slated for two areas: the neighborhoods around the Mercedes-Benz Stadium — Vine City, English Avenue and Castleberry Hill — and downtown Atlanta. The designs are being developed through a series of community conversations attended by the artists.
The artist group includes Atlanta residents Shelia Pree Bright, Shanequa Gay and Sean Schwab, the creator of the John Lewis mural on Auburn Avenue. It also includes Yehimi A. Cambron Alvarez of Mexico and Atlanta, Brandan "B-Mike" Odums of New Orleans, Andrew "Gaia" Pisacane of New York City, Ernest Shaw of Baltimore, Reginald "L.E.O" O'Neal of Miami and Gilbert Young of Cincinnati.
The complete collection of works will become part of the city of Atlanta’s permanent public art collection, to be maintained by the city. The city’s first two Super Bowls were held in 1994 and 2000.
