Oakland Cemetery Less than a mile from the heart of downtown Atlanta, a hidden treasure, a secret sanctuary, welcomes you. This garden cemetery, founded in 1850, is the final resting place of many of Atlantas settlers, builders, and most noted citizens like Bobby Jones, Margaret Mitchell, and Maynard Jackson. While walking through the cemetery on a self-guided tour, use your phone or camera to record at least 10 different examples of fonts. Capture overall images of the monument, as well as details of the typography and articulate how cultural messages are conveyed in each of the 2 you identified: classic, modern, formal, informal, emotional, etc.
Supplies needed by participants: Camera or a phone with a camera
