Located on the exterior wall of Food for the Soul, a new mural depicts police-community relations imagined from the past, present and future. The project launched last summer when UGA freshmen enrolled in Brian Williams’ First Year Odyssey seminar, “The Current State of Police-Community Relations: Problems and Prospects,” partnered with local law enforcement officers as well as artist and activist Broderick Flanigan, who led teenagers through the process of painting through his mural arts program, HARPS. The entrance to Colima Avenue off Broad Street will be blocked off for the celebration, so guests are encouraged to park at the Clarke County School District Office on Dearing Extension.
