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.
