Mayson Hardee Mural

The intersection of Mayson and Hardee is at the heart of the vibrant Edgewood Neighborhood and has long been a hotspot for violent crime. As a result, neighbors and community stakeholders have spearheaded efforts to reclaim the intersection as a safe and beautiful space for residents to enjoy. Together, we agreed to launch a community-led project to add a vibrant, uplifting work of art to represent the eclectic heritage and inclusive future of Edgewood.

Beautify Edgewood

The Beautify Edgewood initiative represents our diverse neighborhood of individuals, local businesses and families who aim to make our community a more welcoming and inviting place for all. 

 

Edgewood has seen lots of changes over the years, and while the new commercial and residential developments have expanded our community, we want to keep our eclectic character and incorporate beauty back into the area. We want to define our space with a cohesive brand that visually represents the unique tapestry of our historic neighborhood. 

Why this project?

Beautification efforts are proven to reduce violence and crime, and we hope to achieve this in Edgewood through the installation of a professional mural that visually unites this intersection and our community.

The project will make our intersection more approachable and lead to increased foot traffic. As a result, this will help reduce violence and crime that has been steadily growing over the last year. The backdrop for this mural will be the Atlanta Police Foundation building, across the street from the Wylde Center’s Edgewood Garden.

We’re in the process of finding a muralist willing to work with the community to take on this project. But beautification projects like these aren’t cheap, so we’re asking our neighbors to come together to help us reclaim the heart of our neighborhood. We can achieve our goal if 50 neighbors each donate $50. Will you step up to be one of our first 50 backers?
