PATTERNS OF FLIGHT: #ARTOFCOMMUNITY
(Annual Resident Artist Exhibition for the Creatives Project Atlanta)
A vital force in Atlanta’s arts community, The Creatives Project strengthens and unites arts, education, community and commerce by creating an arts eco-system that empowers eager citizens to recognize Atlanta’s potential. They accomplish this goal by engaging fresh resources, implementing crucial and deliberate arts and culture initiatives and leading arts-based education. TCP patrons donate subsidized housing and free studio space to support our artists as they serve Atlanta neighborhoods by generating vibrant and fertile communities poised for economic growth and development. Inspired by their growth in creative collaboration, the show embodies the journey of the Creatives Project resident artists and how they have expanded and elevated their bodies of work.
For more information on the artists and the exhibition, visit the Creatives Project website: www.thecreativesproject.org/annual-exhibition.
