Devin Brown, Timothy Moore, Laniesha Gatewood, and Kobeai Ford display the silver brushes Mark Making awarded them last week for taking leadership roles in a project in which East Chattanooga youth painted over graffiti on Glass Street.

Mark Making, a nonprofit that exists to “empower individuals and transform communities through professionally led public art projects” (markmaking.org), hired over a dozen teens to cover the graffiti-covered areas on the building that once housed the post office on Glass Street with design work they created in Mark Making classes.
