Neighborhood Info

This map shows street art, murals, and graffiti in southeastern Atlanta. South Atlanta (originally called Brownsville) was a thriving African American community and a center of higher learning, the arts, and business. In 1941 when Clark University and Gammon Theological Seminary, a mainstay of the community relocated, a decades long period of decline began. Towards the end of the 20th century South Atlanta, like many communities, began a trend of revitalization that continues today.

Street Art in the Neighborhood

Southeast Atlanta is one of the city’s best kept street art secrets. The neighborhood of South Atlanta is the epicenter for murals in this quadrant of town. You will find an impressive array of street art and murals on and around Jonesboro Road. Don’t miss Olive47’s 50 foot long caterpillar! Here are a couple of other pieces of street art in the SE that you should go and see: Check out the large scale mural by Lauren Pallotta Stumberg and Saleam Bey in the Peoplestown neighborhood. Also I recommend the street art hotspot on Cleveland Ave near Macon Drive featuring a mural by Jarrett Becke depicting a scene out of civil rights history. In this mural John Lewis receives the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Barack Obama with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the background.

Another area to check out is the Skylark apartment complex on Boulevard next to the BeltLine. Go into the property and you will see a five story tall mural by Lacey Longino featuring flowers and plants. The apartments also have three murals by Eric Nine. If you have a little extra time, you might also want to see the nearby street art in Grant Park.
