Take a look at the new street mural on Riverfront Parkway

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – A local artist gets help from volunteers to create a colorful addition to Downtown Chattanooga.

News 12’s Bekah Birdsall gives us a look at the Riverfront Parkway Mural.

A new mural highlighting the unique features and landscape Chattanooga has to offer was painted on Riverfront Parkway Thursday between Chestnut Street & Power Alley.

The mural incorporates features like the Tennessee River, Chattanooga skyline, and local wildlife.

Artist Alex Pauloza says his inspiration came from the city of Chattanooga.

“Just wanted to highlight our beautiful city especially our landscape and scenery just to celebrate Chattanooga. This mural is going to be a little interactive as well so parents and kids can enjoy the mural together.”

This mural is part of River City Company’s One Riverfront Chattanooga to improve community engagement and stimulate the local economy.

“There’s a lot of great, open public space right where we are with the Chattanooga Green and Ross’ landing so it’s a great opportunity to bring your family, grab your mask, come down with a picnic and a blanket just enjoy the riverfront and also this fun, little addition. We hope when you come down and look at the mural and enjoy it, that you’ll also go grab lunch or an ice cream cone or go visit one of the businesses here on the Riverfront.”

Volunteers began painting Thursday morning and finished the mural by the afternoon.

Visitors can go check it out anytime.
