MARTA ArtBound Unveils New Mural at Kensington Station
Artwork Part of Second Installation of Black Artists Matter Series
MARTA’s public art program Artbound has unveiled a new mural by artist Kevin Bongang at Kensington rail station on the East/West Line. The piece titled Boundless is featured on the north side of the station.
Bongang was selected as part of phase two of Artbound’s Black Artists Matter series inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement and the call for racial justice and equity. Phase two also included artwork at Indian Creek Station that was completed in January. Phase one was done in partnership with Decatur Arts Alliance and featured artwork at East Lake and Avondale rail stations last fall.
One percent of MARTA’s annual budget is allocated to enhance the ridership experience through visual and performance art. MARTA Artbound provides opportunities for artists year-round with a range of projects encompassing many modes of art. To learn more visit https://itsmarta.com/artbound.aspx.
