New mural alert! Birmingham’s Titusville neighborhood now has a new inspirational painting in the heart of the community.

Located on the backside of the Memorial Park Recreation Center at 524 6th Avenue South, I literally stumbled upon the nearly finished mural on a Sunday morning picture-taking drive around the community. 

Obviously, when I returned back home, I visited one of my favorite Facebook group pages Murals of Birmingham.  Of course, they had the details about this wonderful addition to one of Birmingham’s most historic communities.

Here is their February 20th post about the mural project in Titusville:

According to Murals of Birmingham’s Viktoria Havasi, there will be a community unveiling in the near future. She also said chalk will be left at the mural so residents can interactively write in answers within the  bubbles. Pretty cool stuff.

Interested in Birmingham’s Murals?

If you are interested in finding Birmingham’s colorful and creative murals, visit the Murals of Birmingham group Facebook page. Pinned at the top you will see a continuously updated google map of all the murals in and around the Magic City. It is an awesome gift to the community.   

I asked Viktoria for comment about Birmingham’s murals and why they are important to our community. She provided me this statement.

“I love murals for a variety of reasons: most of the murals are outdoor pieces and are easily accessible for anyone for free. Murals can transform dull, neglected walls or buildings to something spectacular, and mural hunts can be a safe activity that you do alone or with a few of your friends/family members during the pandemic. Murals – especially temporary ones we had around downtown last summer – can also be art pieces that make us think about current events or get involved with movements like Black Lives Matter. I hope we will have many more murals added to our great city in the future.”

We totally agree. In fact, here are a few recent murals that have appeared over the past few months.
