Beautify L5P is the effort of The Little 5 Points Alliance to remove stickers and graffiti that we call “vertical trash” from street poles, signal boxes, back flow preventers and other metal surfaces throughout the public spaces of Little 5 Points.
The beatification committee consisting of commercial property owners, L5P business owners, artists and Inman and Candler residents created “REMOVE STICKERS & ADD ART” project to address unsightly visual clutter and inject more of what Little 5 Points is known for- art, culture, a little bit of funk, creativity and being a unique destination that everyone loves! Don’t worry we’re not going to remove all the grit, just make it sparkle!
Tackle a few choice “vertical trash items” to clean, paint and seal items to show the transformation as well as a platform for more involvement. Committee members and local artists have ADOPTED an item to transform. By adopting the item, each person or group have committed to keeping the item free of stickers, graffiti and always updated with art!
There are over 25 items throughout L5P not including the large metal poles on Moreland Avenue that GDOT is responsible for. These items also include the traffic light signal boxes that will be PHASE TWO. We intend to apply at the end of April for a City of Atlanta Neighborhood Art Grant to cover the 6 boxes in L5P with local art just like Downtown, Decatur and O4W. This grant will have a call for artists process.
L5P Alliance needs everyone who LOVES L5P TO HELP US GET EVEN FUNKIER WITH ART! You, your family, a group of friends, a business or local artist can ADOPT an item. All art is approved by the board of directors and must be family friendly. All artists need to sign their name and use the L5P logo and #l5patl. By adopting an item, you agree to keep it clean and always updated with art. See the master list of “vertical trash items” available with outline/costs.
