A nod to the beauty and adventure of the Longleaf Trace and Hattiesburg Zoo, Moore's Bike Shop worked with HAPA partners and artist Heidi Pitre on this joyful mural located at 1607 Hardy Street in Hattiesburg's Avenues District.
Located at Hardy Street and North 10th Avenue, artist Kelsey Wishik transformed a building facade into a colorful work of art. In addition to HAPA, both John Neal and the Avenues Alliance were instrumental in bringing the "We're All In This Together" mural project to life.
Titled "Wonderful Day", this downtown mural located at 300 Hardy Street is an inspirational piece highlighting a quote by author Maya Angelou. Located across from the Hattiesburg Public Library, the HAPA project was completed in March 2020 and was led by artist Ricardo Moody in cooperation with local high school art students and the building owners.
In cooperation with T-Bones Records & Cafe and Prince Sign Company, HAPA partnered to present "Hattiesburg, the Birthplace of Rock & Roll." The work is a nod to Rock & Roll’s roots beginning in Hattiesburg, where the first riffs of the genre were recorded in July 1936. This historical recording by The Mississippi Jook Band is commemorated by an official Mississippi Blues Trail Marker.
