Graffiti ImageThe Project:

The Cooper-Young Mural Project was developed to beautify, clean up and turn the South Mclean underpass and the Barksdale underpass into a doorway between two historical and established neighborhoods. This project is a joint effort created by the Cooper-Young Community Association and the surrounding neighborhoods and local Artist Carl E. Moore and Michelle Reeves.

The project was also developed to stop the reoccurring vandalism, graffiti, tagging and structural damage that take place on a regular basis costing money and valuable time to cleanup. Over the years members of the Cooper Young Associations have at their own expense maintained the walls and columns by sweeping up debris and covering up unacceptable images, text and removing trash and debris. This is an attempted to maintain not only the value of the community but also the value of its residents.

Production of the mural projects are scheduled from April to July 2013 with scheduled painting dates set by the artist.

Please check-in on a regular basis for mural updates, samples of the art, working photos, volunteer schedule and and media material.
