This is a very new mural, having gone up in Germantown in early August. It’s small, a little less than seven by nine feet. The message is straightforward, even without the all-caps “HARMONY” across the bottom. Put up days before the recent attack in Charlottesville, VA, it is even more relevant now. The artist is Ty Christian, who goes by @creativ_ty on Instagram. His Facebook page gives much more weight to his career as a musician. The mural also credits @relic90 as the producer, which turns out to be the name of a “Nashville based sock company,” though they also sell T-shirts and other items.
Located at 1120 4th Avenue North. The mural actually faces Madison Street, on the north side of the building that houses Cochon Butcher, Juice Bar Germantown, and Little Donkey. There isn’t much free parking or street parking nearby, but there’s a paid lot across the street on 4th. Choose from one of your many grub options and enjoy the art!

Artwork like this means so much more into today’s society because it helps raise awareness of the social issues that people still experience. People experience racism and hate so regularly but some people will never know. This mural helps to bring a lot of awareness which is one of the reasons this mural means so much to people. Some people, especially white people will never know what it means to experience hatred based on their colour which is sad and it seems like people underestimate all social problems everyone experiences like mental health, disability and more mostly because there is no awareness.
