MARTA THROWS BLOCK PARTY AT ASHBY STATION

                                               Mural Dedication Features Food, Music, Arts & Crafts

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) celebrated the completion of the Ashby Station mural with a block party on Saturday, March 24 from 2 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

The event, sponsored by WonderRoot, The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, Invest Atlanta, and MARTA’s Artbound program was free and open to the public. A media availability and ribbon-cutting was followed by a block party featuring food trucks, live entertainment, and arts & crafts activities.

The mural, The People Could Fly, by artist Fahamu Pecou was commissioned through MARTA’s Artbound program as part of the En Route partnership with TransFormation Alliance. Artbound was developed to enhance the ridership experience through visual and performing arts.

“With this new mural at Ashby Station, Artbound hopes to add some color, beauty, and joy to the daily commute,” said MARTA Arts Administrator Katherine Dirga.

One percent of MARTA’s annual budget is allocated for Artbound. Additional artwork is planned for H. E. Holmes, Midtown, and Five Points Stations this year.
