These Olympics-era reproductions of Georgia's more prominent self-taught artists might have been new and glossy when the torch was still burning, but they've since been weathered by time, worn out by skateboarders and made into de facto housing for the city's homeless. It seems oddly fitting that the work of outsiders and visionaries like the LSD-inspired St. EOM would attract Atlanta's outcasts like moths to a flame.
