Melrose mural is now complete

The Melrose Apartments mural is now complete! And on Aug. 2, residents, GHA staff, UNG students and area arts supporters celebrated the summer-long project.

Michelle Vatral and Melanie Mitchell, both seniors majoring in Art at the University of North Georgia, interned this summer with the Gainesville Housing Authority (GHA) to mentor and lead teen residents in completing the mural project celebrating the GHA’s Melrose Apartments community.

The seniors gained experience in teaching, project management, community relations and mentoring children.

The mural, 9’ x 36’, is part of a larger effort by the Vision 2030 Public Art Committee of the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce to beautify the area with displays of public art. The committee hopes to eventually fill the 900 ft. wall along Pearl Nix Parkway that acts as a traffic buffer to the Melrose Apartments community.
