All day Sunday, a small cadre of local artists and arts lovers gathered at Eyedrum to kick off the first phase of a grassroots project to add a touch of art to the Beltline and to make more people aware of where it is.
The project, which has been months in the making, involves creating more than 100 artful signs to designate where the 22-mile smart-growth project crosses public streets.
Angel Poventud, one of the project's co-organizers, says WonderRoot staff spent $400 on wood on Saturday night. The next day, artists brought whatever materials they had oils, pastels, even house paint and got to work.
"It's hard to believe you can pull off a project like this for less than a grand," Poventud says. "But it's all about the passion. And it's here."
The group plans to install the signs along the project sometime this week.
Good Marx, the unmitigated temerity of these selfish malcontents. How dare they invoke such blasphemy…
Wow, funny how a ferris wheel debate can really bring out the acute symptoms of…
"i'll be a season ticket holder for the new Falcons stadium in 2017."
congrats to Rodney, Joeff, Dustin, and Brandon.
and good luck.
The last question and answer is what it's really about (outside of money of course).
The Gorgeous JR was nominated for best commenter as well.
Good Job CL…
