According to the press release from Eyedrum's board chair Allen Welty-Green:
Eyedrum Art & Music gallery announced today that it will move from its current location as of Dec. 31, 2010. It has occupied its current location since 2001. The organization extends its gratitude to property manager Braden Fellman for the many good years at Eyedrum's 290 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive location.
The move reflects the organization’s resilience and value to the greater Atlanta community, demonstrated by Eyedrum’s recent programming, such as the nationally and critically acclaimed Living Walls exhibition, Tristan Perich's Atlanta premiere of his Dual Synthesis for Harpsichord & 1-Bit Electronics and Blake Beckham's dance/installation American Muscle — as well as the group's recent award for Best Underground Art Space, from Creative Loafing’s Best of Atlanta Reader’s Poll (for several years running).
"We have received attractive offers for a new space and will finalize our decision about relocation shortly,” said Board Chair Allen Welty-Green. "Wherever Eyedrum winds up, though, the organization intends to continue its mission and remain essential to Atlanta's underground and alternative arts scenes," he added.
Details about the new location, a yard sale, and volunteer opportunities to help Eyedrum move will follow later this fall.
Stay tuned for more details as they become available.

Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring…
