About this Event
1600 Peachtree St. NW, Atlanta, Georgia 30309
Public art not only raises awareness of social and political issues, but also beautifies public locations, and its artists have been progressively more recognized and valued in the art industry. Professional artists receive grants and fellowships for their works and the exposure can propel their careers forward, such as famed American contemporary public artist, graphic designer and illustrator Shepard Fairey and SCAD alum, Brandon Sadler, whose works have been featured in the film“Black Panther” and the exhibition, “Ruth E. Carter: Afrofuturism in Costume Design” currently on display at SCAD FASH. Join Professor Navin Norling for a walking tour of the Little Five Points neighborhood. The walk will be about one mile making frequent stops at sites. Wear comfortable shoes, bring headphones or ear buds, and be prepared to log onto Zoom to hear ALL the commentary. Bus will leave at 1 p.m. - JOIN VIRTUALLY via ZOOM at 1:30 p.m.!
