Brookhaven, GA, Sept. 6, 2017 - In a collaborative effort to promote public art and the multicultural Buford Highway corridor, Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst welcomes the BuHi Walk to the City of Brookhaven. The BuHi Walk is a collaboration between two Atlanta-based nonprofits, We Love BuHi and Living Walls: The City Speaks. BuHi Walk art installations and public events will take place Sept. 8-17, 2017 throughout the neighboring cities of Brookhaven, Chamblee and Doraville.

“The BuHi Walk project is a perfect opportunity to showcase Brookhaven multiculturalism and expand on its walkability and attractiveness as a pedestrian walking city,” said Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst. “Brookhaven welcomes visitors from around the world who are celebrating this event with us.”

The goals of the BuHi Walk are to celebrate cultural diversity, engage the immigrant residents and business owners of Buford Highway and promote the development of a safe and walkable corridor while facilitating regional cooperation.

Two of the most prolific events of the BuHi Walk take place in the City of Brookhaven.
