Atlanta's Office of Cultural Affairs has their hands on some great public arts projects lately. Just after announcing the ambitious Elevate: Art Above Underground project coming this fall, they've also officially announced the beginning of annual mural project, Four Coats. The idea was a brainchild of Beep Beep Gallery's James McConnell, who was introduced to city officials by Living Walls co-founder Monica Campana. Each year, Four Coats will help secure the rights to four public walls to be curated for murals by local galleries. This year, Whitespace, Marcia Wood, Get This!, and Beep Beep, chose (respectively) Tommy Taylor, Andy Moon Wilson, Sunday Southern Art Revival, and Lucha Rodriguez to paint murals nearby their galleries. If you've been by Get This! to see the current show from Paper Twins (and you really should if you haven't), then you probably had a glance at Wilson's mural which is located inside the parking lot for Get This! and Saltworks. Sunday Southern Art Revival's mural is going up on the front of 364 Nelson, where David Batterman and Andrew Hammond's Ants and Grasshoppers installation is currently showing. Work on the murals will continue into June and we hear there will be a celebration when all four are completed, though no date has been set, yet. Stay tuned to Four Coats for more details.
