The project took forty-two faculty, staff, and students several months to complete. Cyndy Epps headed up the project on behalf of Augusta University's Art Department. She says it was a unique opportunity for students to get involved and for the community to see are in action. 

Augusta University's Art students and volunteers have contributed significantly to the city.

On Monday, Mar. 18th, they unveiled a new mural at Reynolds and 11th Street in Downtown Augusta.

The project, which involved forty-two faculty, staff, and students, took several months to complete.

Cyndy Epps led the initiative on behalf of Augusta University's Art Department. She highlighted the special opportunity this project offered for students to get involved and for the community to witness art in action.

"People were coming by even after we had just started painting this mural, taking pictures of it already. I think it makes it feel like a safer place to live and walk around, do business, and grab lunch. People really enjoy it because it's really colorful. It adds a nice little touch to the Downtown area", expressed Epps.

"It really helps brighten up Downtown. Brick is nice, but a pretty painted mural is even better", says Emily Radulescu, mural designer.

If you want to check out the mural, it's on the Laziza catering building, across the street from the Georgia Cyber Innovation and Training Center.
