One of the portraits included in the Face to Face Mural
What better way to understand a neighborhood than to see the faces of its community? This is the theme of the latest mural from Mark Making, an organization that brings art to underserved communities in Chattanooga.
Mark Making unveiled their newest mural on Martin Luther King Day. It’s called FACE to FACE and features abstract portraits of several East Chattanooga teenagers. The mural also tackles subjects such as violence, pollution, and poverty.
Mark Making, a Chattanooga organization which transforms under-served communities through art, has had a busy fall. The organization recently received a Community Foundation Grant to begin a mural in East Chattanooga. The mural will feature portraits of those in the community.
And these portraits are not only two-dimensional, but three-dimensional. Frances McDonald of Mark Making describes the process in this interview.
