A step forward for public art in the Martin Luther King Boulevard area of downtown Chattanooga.

EPB has chosen a dozen local artists to complete the next phase of a community mural project on the second side of the utility’s 10th Street Substation.

The theme is “Voices of MLK.”

Madison Myers and Ty Swint are two of the artists - and Scottie Summerlin is with EPB.
