The BuHi Walk

      Conceptualized during an urban planning study for Buford Highway, the BuHi Walk is an innovative public art project that will create a safe and engaging pedestrian infrastructure within the sprawling shopping plazas and parking lots of this major transportation corridor.  The BuHi Walk will connect the interior walkways and informal pedestrian routes within Buford Highway’s lots and parcels through an array of murals, sculptures, installations, and other concepts.

These concepts will be created by ten local and national artists of color following an immersive community engagement program. Project completion of The BuHi Walk will be marked by four days of public programming with the intent of celebrating Buford Highway's multicultural diversity.
