Here is some interesting trivia about East Atlanta. Some neighborhoods have a mascot. East Atlanta Village has four mascots: Rooster, Dragon, Llama, and Peacock. EAV adopted the large rooster sculpture on Moreland Ave as a mascot. For many years, a dragon mural by Ronnie Land was prominently displayed at the corner of Glenwood Ave and Flat Shoals Ave. Today you can find a dragon mural on the mailbox at 570 Flat Shoals Ave painted by Chris Makes Art. A llama rescue organization on the outskirts of the village resulted in the llama mascot. Local legend has it that there was a time when peacocks roamed the stretch of Flat Shoals Ave near Ormewood Ave, hence the Peacock mascot.
Street Art in the Neighborhood
East Atlanta is one of the Atlanta neighborhoods where an impressive amount of street art, spray art, murals and graffiti are highly concentrated in one easily walkable area. Most murals are within a couple of blocks of the intersection of Glenwood Ave. and Flat Shoals Ave. Living Walls and Outer Space Project sponsored many of the murals in the neighborhood. Not all of the street art is visible from the street. For example there are several high-end graffiti masterpieces behind 442 Flat Shoals Ave. So be sure to make full use of the map to find the hidden artwork.
