2020 AARP Community Challenge Grantee
The 4th St Community Mural Project will bring residents together to complete a mural on a building adjacent to a park and help collect feedback for future investments and improvements in the neighborhood.
During the planning stages for a mural at the 4th & Rodney Park, Pastor Lottie Lee-Davis, the project's lead community partner, was killed in a car crash. The original goal for the mural was to provide positive examples for the neighborhood youth to look up to as they played in the park. After Pastor Lottie's death, organizers used the mural as a way to honor the woman who was a beloved leader and advocate for the 4th Street corridor's residents. Local artists Crae Washington and JaQuanne LeRoy Daniels made Lee-Davis the central figure in the mural, surrounding her with bold colors and words representing the career aspirations of the area's children and teens.
