The art is a double-sided pictoral tribute to the Interurban Street Car that ran between Atlanta and Stone Mountain from 1913 to 1948. The 15 x 6-foot artwork is made of aluminum panels and features a granite base made from a piece of Stone Mountain.

The piece of art will be dedicated on Main Street between the Visitors Center Caboose and the Stone Mountain Municipal Building. A reception will be held at the ART Station on Manor Drive immediately after the dedication.
