Public Art Mural in Johns Creek

ABOUT
The Public Art Mural

The Johns Creek Convention and Visitor Center partnered with Atlanta artist, William Massey, and Urban Catalyst Lab to connect this project to multiple public art movements. Given the diverse demographics of the City, well-know Indian artist, Hanif Kureshi, designed and painedt the mural with help from the community.

Pedestrian Tunnel Mural Completed !

Grand Opening was Saturday, April 21 at 10:00am

Dozens of volunteers helped paint the mural created by artist Hanif Kureshi during his April 10-21 residency. 

This was a great opportunity for local artists, community volunteers and high school students to be part of the project and work with an internationally known artist.

The mural is beautiful during the day, but also experience it when it is dark outside - the colors become especially vibrant!

The tunnel is located under 141/Medlock Bridge Road with entrances just south of McGinnis Ferry Road near Panera Bread on the east side and Starbucks on the west side.

NEW Public Art from Johns Creek Beautification's Art Spot

At their November 27, 2017 meeting, the Johns Creek City Council voted to approve a recommendation for public art for the Bell-Boles roundabout.

The piece will be a commissioned mixed-metal sculpture by Eric Strauss, a nationally known artist who grew up in the Shakerag area. The concept for the sculpture is a contemporary interpretation of a horse emerging from a base of leaves and vines, with an approximate size of 13x13 feet.

Beautification Johns Creek's Art Spot will raise the funds to commission and purchase the work, then donate it to the City.

With the City Council's approval, Art Spot can engage the artist and begin a fundraising campaign. It's expected the fundraising and creation of the large sculpture could take 18 months.

See the Public Art Board's Recommendation for this sculpture (includes more about the artist and a concept doodle).
