The "Eyes" Have It!
The Hapeville Mural projects are an initiative of the Hapeville Main Street Board and the Hapeville Association of Tourism and Trade. The Murals are intended to create a lasting visual impact in downtown, a symbol of the City’s commitment to downtown revitalization.
In August 2012, you may have noticed the glance of “Mona Lisa” by Italian master Leonardo da Vinci, looking down on S. Central Avenue. Upon the completion of the "Hapeville Celebrates the Arts" Mural, several other noted pairs of eyes have downtown Hapeville within their sights!
Artist Shannon Lake, photographed at work, completed The Hapeville Arts Mural that was commissioned by the Hapeville Association of Tourism and Trade, in partnership with the Main Street Program. The mural design depicts a collage of details from numerous noted works of art throughout the ages.
The artist was seen painting by day and night high above S. Central Avenue on the rear of the 500 block, just opposite Memorial Garden. For Hapeville public art project information call 404.669.8428.
