Muralist bring prolific backdrop for Super Bowl LIII
Off the Wall is a city-wide initiative led by WonderRoot and the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee taking place from June 2018 through February 2019. Through murals, media, and community conversations Off the Wall shares elements of Atlanta’s civil rights and social justice journey, elevating key stories and ideas present in our city’s pursuit of civil rights, human rights and a more equitable future for all Atlantans. The eleven Off the Wall muralists have created their mural designs based on these Community Conversations. WonderRoot facilitated multiple feedback sessions, inviting residents of the neighborhoods where murals are being installed to comment on the design concepts.
The results range from portraiture that honors specific achievements to more whimsical installations around transit hubs.
After the Big Game on February 3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, each mural is expected to remain as part of the city’s permanent public art collection, officials have said.
