Murals and street art provide a great background for a picture, and a great way to promote artists, while expressing your own individuality, political stance, or whatever the art represents. Vivid rainbow stripes are painted across this intersection of Atlanta’s Piedmont Avenue (pictured above with dancer Keith Reeves). The crosswalks were installed in 2017 by the mayor, marking the one year anniversary of the Pulse shootings in Orlando.
