GHA kids plan 2nd Melrose mural

Keep an eye on the Pearl Nix Parkway traffic wall at Melrose Apartments over the next few weeks and you’ll see something dramatic emerge: a colorful mural designed and painted by housing authority kids and some artist friends.
 
Led by artist/teacher Jananne Waller, GHA kids are crafting the mural to celebrate the community and daily life around Melrose Apartments. Partially funded by a grant from the Marta Chapman Memorial Foundation, the project began earlier this fall, and is expected to be complete before Christmas.
 
The mural – measuring about 11” x 55” – will be painted directly on the wall by GHA kids, assisted by Waller and other local volunteers. The mural will join up with the existing mural painted in 2017, seen at the corner of Queen City Parkway and Pearl Nix Parkway and facing the Melrose Apartments.
 
The project was created to help public housing kids get excited about envisioning a better environment and positive community vibes through art, as well as exposing them to local artists and career possibilities within the arts.
