The Athens Cultural Affairs Commission is pleased to announce the selected artist for the upcoming Hot Corner Mural (to be completed on the side of the Morton Building this June). Of over 40 applicants from around the country, our selection panel (comprised of community members with past or present ties to Hot Corner and its businesses) chose South Florida based muralist, Elio Mercado.
Mercado has more than 5 years experience in worldwide public art and community mural projects. He specializes in creating meaningful works for communities that leave a lasting impression. Mercado has previously worked with community members to draw up mural concepts, and looks forward to working with Athens to bring his vision for Hot Corner to fruition.
