You’ll find Reynoldstown in southeast Atlanta, bumping up against downtown and Cabbagetown. You’ll also find that it’s undergoing a mass transformation. Memorial Drive, where at least four condo and townhome projects have opened or will soon arrive, has the historic neighborhood — which dates to the 1860s — facing a tidal wave of gentrification.
Ah, but the area is known for holding tight to its history, including its appetite for murals that brighten its alleyways, corners and walls. The Memorial Drive / Moreland Avenue area has become a particular hot spot for street artists. (Take a visual tour via the Atlanta Street Art Map.) Today’s spotlighted murals, the work of 10 artists (listed alphabetically), are all within a one-minute walk of the corner at Memorial and Moreland. You’ll find additional murals there, too, from such national and international artists as Daniel Bombardier, DeGrupo, Taji and the Miami collective The Mad Clout.
