Mural being donated, location sought
I’ve asked Knoxville’s deputy director for redevelopment Dawn Michelle Foster if she can connect us with the developer at University Commons. I know Dawn from work on the Greenways Commission. She’s very receptive to new ideas to improve the city.
University Commons is actually a re-developed brownfield site, home to the former Fulton Bellows, one of Knoxville’s first industries.
Also right on UT campus, and in Knoxville’s most denseley populated neighborhood (Fort Sanders and UT-Knoxville Campus). Hundreds of thousands of SEC football fans will also have the chance to see it.
I’m optimistic about it. A mural would be a big improvement over a blank concrete wall. Plus, since it’s a new wall, it’ll probably hold paint well.
