Gary Flesher
Ceramic tile and granite trim
In 1993, fifteen high school students worked with artists Gary Flesher and Mahdi Fakhreddin to design two tile murals on Ponce de Leon Avenue under the Norfolk Southern Company’s railroad underpass. Each of the students were paid and were given quality arts experiences in handmaking tiles and translating design into large-scale, public art. “Evolution” and Fakhreddin’s mural “Our City” were awarded an award of excellence from the Urban Design Commission.
