The City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs Public Art Program will officially launch Elevate / Art Above Underground Aug. 26 through Oct. 30. The exhibition is a temporary art event featuring innovative projects by local, national and international artists along the Upper Alabama Street Corridor and surrounding areas in Downtown Atlanta.
Elevate / Art Above Underground will bring public art to the heart of downtown with an assortment of exhibitions ranging from large murals to highly conceptual art with a focus on showcasing local talent.
During the month of May, the Office of Cultural Affairs offered workshops for the artists to assist them in understanding the vision for Elevate. Artists were instructed on how best to conceptualize working in a Downtown environment with the hopes of encouraging art that interacts meaningfully with a Downtown audience.
