Ross Street Crosswalk

Bringing art to the street

In August 2019, I was selected to be one of four artists by Bike Walk Macon to paint a crosswalk at a prominent intersection in Macon, Georgia. The only constraint was to stay within a specific color palette, but the design could be whatever I wanted. I decided to go with an abstract map of Macon that consisted of a grid of burnt orange and golden yellow. When I added the Ocmulgee River, a nice organic pop of blue, the design was complete. Three assistants and I spent about 10 hours installing my design—who knew you needed to have so many coats of paint to sustain continuous car traction?!

If you visit, the crosswalk mural, tag me using #mamahawkdraws, so I can see!
