Atlanta is searching for artists to design two street murals in the West End as part of the city’s Placemaking Program, which works to transform city streets and public spaces into cultural areas.

The murals will sit at the intersections of White Street and Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard and White Street and Hopkins Street in southwest Atlanta.

Artists must submit proposals to the Department of City Planning, the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs and the West End Neighborhood Development.
