America’s Boulevard

1504 presents a documentary exploring public art and community redevelopment by showcasing one of the country’s largest murals in Chattanooga, TN.

Renowned artist Meg Saligman has been commissioned to paint one of the largest murals in the country on M.L. King Boulevard in Chattanooga, TN. As the artists attempt to reflect the rich and complex racial history of the neighborhood, they encounter a community at the crossroads of change, and one that is reflective of America’s yet unfulfilled dream of equality for all.

The story explores the intersection of public art and redevelopment from the perspectives of local residents and non-local artists who come together to ask: “What do we want to preserve in our collective memories?”

This 25-minute documentary is presented by 1504 with generous grant funding provided by the Benwood Foundation and Lyndhurst Foundation.
