Even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, new artwork continues to pop up in Downtown Biloxi.
The Biloxi Public Art Project has been underway for the past year and a half as a way to brighten up certain buildings and encourage people to explore the downtown areas.
The project is now up to 12 murals painted by eight local artists in prominent areas with featured artwork including the side of Mary Mahoney’s, underneath the I-110 underpass, and the Marley’s Music Building.
Additionally, a brand new mural on the side of the building that houses Jacked up Coffee Bar and Southern Bound Book Shop highlights the Coast’s strength during the pandemic. Corey Christy with Biloxi Main Street said, “We want people to come down and see it and the murals are almost an attraction in themselves. You can come down, take a bike ride or a walk and check it all out, it’s all over downtown.”
