Mer Young

Of all the walls selected for the Uptown Creative Corridor Challenge, Mer Young’s site has the most layers of paint. The various layers have resulted from defacement that has been present at the site for over 30 years. The property owners remain excited about the opportunity to have a mural here because of the impact that it will have on the presence of defacement. The mural will also help beautify the corridor making the site one of the few South St. locations in the district where a mural is placed. Outside of beautification that the new design will bring to the corridor, it will encourage mural placement at neighboring areas.
