The Atlanta City Council recently approved the authorization of public art in the Kirkwood and Edgewood neighborhoods. Councilwoman Natalyn Archibong introduced the ordinances, which were adopted at the Jan. 3 meeting.

Both art installations will be murals, and their completion will be contingent upon the schedule of the artists and the weather.

The name of the Kirkwood artwork, by artist Allen Peterson, is “Kirkwood Hive” and will be located on the east wall of the MARTA underpass at the corner of Rocky Ford and College Avenue. The mural for Edgewood, at 1209 Memorial Dr. S.E. by artist Chris Veal, is called “Reflections.”
