MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A project that will help beautify the tallest building in Memphis wrapped up Friday.

Downtown Memphis Commission asked artists to decorate the plywood located around 100 N Main Street.

The plywood blocks were put up around the vacant building to stop vandals from going inside without permission.

Artists spent three days turning those plywood blocks into works of art. 

"Rather than looking at a blue wall, we decided that it would be a wonderful opportunity to bring the neighborhood together to beautify the area by creating this," said Downtown Commission Vice President of Marketing Penelope Houston.

The building is set to be auctioned off sometime in September.
