Georgia Delivers
Hosea Williams Mural

Georgia’s beloved civil rights leader Hosea Williams would have turned 95 on Jan 5th, the day Georgians voted in a historic Senate runoff

In the six weeks leading up to the election, an interactive, non-partisan, exclusively positive public art installation took root at Atlanta’s iconic Hosea mural.

Vote Tree’s live art + music activation featured local emergent artists, particularly women and underrepresented voices. The exuberant 250′ murallage was featured across news outlets and social media, including Raphael Warnock’s Instagram post the day before the election and the opening frames of the Season 6 premiere of Showtime’s The Circus.

Vote Tree’s digital messaging, instant registration QR site signage, and guerrilla-style tactics delivered dramatic and measurable impact. When all the dust settled, our creative GOTV effort helped BlockPower deliver 24.4K votes.
