Hope for the Inner City (1800 Roanoke Ave.)

Artists: Teens from Hope for the Inner City and The Bethlehem Center in collaboration with professional artist Mark Bradley-Shoup.

Partners: Bethlehem Center, Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga, Hope for the Inner City and Tennessee Arts Commission.

Description: The word hope is about believing in better tomorrows that can be pollinated by today’s thoughts and action. “Pollinators” serves as a metaphor signifying the spreading of seeds, intentful thoughts and actions that promote the revitalization of East Chattanooga. This mural is a way to offer teens a rare opportunity to participate fully as citizens who can impact their community.
