Where We Are Now:
All Off the Wall Community Conversations to inform the mural designs have concluded. Between July 21 and September 3 we hosted 41 conversations with our Community Partners engaging over 1,000 participants in total. The 10 Off the Wall muralists are finalizing their designs based on what they heard in these Community Conversations. Residents of the neighborhoods where murals will be installed are currently providing feedback on the design concepts and we are on pace to begin installation next month.
Preview of Off the Wall Mural Designs. Stay tuned…
As Super Bowl LIII arrives in Atlanta in February 2019, the city has the opportunity to elevate its proud civil rights legacy and vision for the future. By emphasizing the idea of uplifting civil rights as a shared purpose, vision, and hope, Atlanta can advance the multi-generational and everlasting story of coming together for change.
Off the Wall is a city-wide initiative led by WonderRoot and the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee taking place from June 2018 through February 2019. Through murals, media, and community conversations Off the Wall shares elements of Atlanta’s civil rights and social justice journey, elevating key stories and ideas present in our city’s pursuit of civil rights, human rights and a more equitable future for all Atlantans.
Ten muralists selected by our Artist Selection Committee have worked with community partners to design and install artworks that represent the long journey toward this brighter future. The content of the murals is informed by 41 integral community conversations. Once all murals have been completed the collection will be turned over to the City of Atlanta to be included in the City’s public art collection.
