Re: “The problem(s) with Luminocity Atlanta's Hinterland

One great way to kill public art attempts is to slice them apart in the media and highlight only the flaws. I happen to know hundreds of people who LOVED Luminocity. Perhaps if our city sponsors, funders and public supported projects like Luminocity financially, they wouldn't have to risk so much to just get out there with their limited funding to simply PROVE their IS a demand for it. Luminocity's Hinterland achieved much that was right...and bravo to them for taking such a huge risk on us. What you didn't see is the 22 transitioning from homelessness front of house ambassadors they had working, the fully electric floats and service vehicles, the public education outreach and student dancers involved and the positive economic impact this event had on our financially challenged city. Anyone who hasn't attempted something of this caliber should not stand in judgement until they have done as much. It is our job as citizens and yours as someone who wants to forward the advancement of public art to encourage all these efforts. There will be another Luminocity and it will learn from itself...but not unless we support them in getting there.
