Through a Bloomberg Philanthropies grant, the Council on Culture & Arts (COCA), the Greater Bond Neighborhood Association, and the City of Tallahassee’s Parks, Recreation, and Neighborhood Affairs (PRNA) Department partnered to facilitate the creative painting of 5 crosswalks and 1 intersection at 3 locations within the Greater Bond neighborhood. Tallahassee distinguishes itself as a national leader in public art by partaking in this Bloomberg Philanthropies Asphalt Art Initiative.
The intersection of Saxon Street and Osceola Street is one of the main entry points into the Greater Bond Neighborhood. The Greater Bond Neighborhood is the homeplace of many Tallahassee trailblazers. Artist for the site’s mural, Vardyce Gaines, chose to highlight one of the neighborhood’s many inspirational figures, Doctor Henry Lewis.
