Next week, some of Atlanta's art and business heavy hitters gather to discuss art's importance for the city both culturally and financially. Here's the breakdown:

WHAT: 8th annual Women in the Arts Panel Luncheon

WHEN: March 18

WHERE: 103 West, Buckhead

WHO: Panelists:

  • Jasmine Guy, stage, film and TV actor, director
  • Virginia Hepner, Atlanta Ballet's interim exec
  • Sandy Hofmann, Advanced Technology Development Center's chief information officer
  • Mary Pat Masterson, Atlanta Botanical Garden's exec director
  • Jan Selman, Arts Leadership League Of Georgia's former exec director


  • Rachel May, Synchronocity's co-founder, producing artistic director

WHY: Where to start? National Women's History Month, women in the arts, art consideration in city planning, building/preserving the Atlanta art world

TO WHAT EXTENT: It's been said that if you really want to know history, if you really want to understand a period's environment, put down the history book, and look at the art. History can be rewritten, but art is frozen in time.
