Tucked behind a burger chain in a high-end shopping center, Poem 88 is easy to miss. The gallery doesn't exhibit the biggest names in Atlanta or have the highest profile, but it has cultivated a core audience that keeps returning. And for good reasons that go beyond the typical exhibition: There is heady experimental music by groups such as Chamber Cartel, soulful folk performances, small-press books in the shop, and film screenings of art house favorites. When the programming coincides it creates an opportunity for the audience to look at the work on the walls in a new light, to see the connections between inspiration and action.
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Sept. 6
