The Greater Bond community is getting a bit of an update.

The Arts and Culture Council is partnering with the City of Tallahassee and Bloomberg Philanthropy to create crosswalk art. It’s called asphalt art, and Friday’s location was at the intersection of Saxton and Tucker Streets.

The focus is on education, with the words “Think Big” emblazoned across the crosswalk from Bond Elementary.

Community art manager Sam Joslin said their goal is to uplift the community. “So public art in general can bring the community together,” Joslin said. “It creates a shared sense of creativity, so in this particular project we wanted to bring in people who had a connection to the area to connect it to the community.”

Another asphalt painting event will be held Saturday at Saxton and Linear Park and Saxton and Osceola Streets.
