Where To…Atlanta, Georgia

10.20.18 Back from London and now we are in Atlanta, Georgia. What can you do in Atlanta? Pretty much everything… Credit source: http://www.atlanta.net & City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs   Launched in 2011, the first exhibition of ELEVATE hosted 15 events and 40 performances over 66 days. Artwork filled vacant properties, street corners and plazas to showcase artwork ranging from 13 story murals to contemporary dance, video, installation, and poetry. Although public funding allocated through our percent for art program was the direct source for the artist commissions, additional funding to execute an exhibition of this caliber was provided through local Atlanta businesses. Donation of art space, hotel rooms, theatrical lighting, food, advertising, and cash support nearly doubled the exhibitions initial budget, demonstrating the immediate community support. This intensive cultural programming brought in 13,313 new visitors to downtown Atlanta. At the end of the program, downtown property owners and businesses adopted the bulk of the visual work commissioned through ELEVATE. The artwork has now been incorporated into the permanent downtown landscape. In addition …

Where To…Nowhere

8. 25. 18 Hello again…this month we’re not going anywhere. I’m too busy exploring what my city has to offer. You should do the same. Find out what your city has to offer in art, music, films…where I’m from, downtown has a lot to offer in live music, the university’s museum is located in that area, along with a center for performing arts. Music festivals could be happening near or in your city, go ahead and see what artists are playing. The city we live in has lots of great activities to do, we just have to find it. So go see that arthouse film you’ve heard about or see an indie playing in a venue in town, browse around an art museum to appreciate good art, or a night out seeing a play. Enjoy your weekend, be blessed.   Image source: rivercenter.org
