Swan City or Mural City? You decide this summer.
Starting this week, the Lakeland Community Redevelopment Agency‘s Dixieland Art Infusion Grant Program officially kicks off as 17 local businesses have signed up to participate. Most of the murals will appear up and down S. Florida Ave., along the “Art Infusion Corridor”, with a goal of at least 20 murals with the potential for more on the way.
Once completed, if you drove down the Art Infusion Corridor, this is the order in which you’d spot the new murals:
