Mural To Adorn Metrorail Guideway In Overtown

The Southeast Overtown/Park West Community Redevelopment Agency wants to place a mural on the Metrorail guideway, just blocks from All Aboard Florida’s project on CRA land. Below are some of the proposals.

According to an RFP issued by the agency, the mural ‘is expected to serve as a visual landmark’ and should ‘accurately reflect the spirit and history of the Overtown community.’ It would be placed in the guideway located on Third Avenue and Northwest Eleventh Street.

The CRA says that the mural will encourage pedestrian traffic while commemorating the culture and heritage of Historic Overtown.’ Installation of the mural is expected to be complete within four months of a committee selecting the winning design.
