The CRA has provided grant funding to muralists to beautify and revitalize the Redevelopment Area, develop a sense of place, deter graffiti, and provide opportunities for artistic expression. Public art is a catalyst for economic development, showing that a community is thriving economically and encouraging other investment. Mural programs increase leasing, visibility, foot traffic, and publicity. Please send Terra images of each of these murals.
