Art news and notes: Lain Shakespeare leaves the Nest (kinda), Atlanta Contemporary Art Center issues a call for entries and more

Atlanta Contemporary Art Center has issued its first open call to arts in more than 5 years for Day Job: Georgia
The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center has issued its first statewide call for entries in more than five years.

Helping pass HB 73, a piece of legislation allowing local communities to pass a fraction of a penny sales tax for economic development and the arts, was one of the achievements of the Arts Leaders of Metro Atlanta. To help cultivate the next bundle of leaders who will make the arts and culture community stronger, the Metro Atlanta Arts & Culture Coalition is continuing its Arts Leaders of Metro Atlanta class this fall. Application deadline is TUES., JULY 26, 5P.M.. More info here.

The Emory College Center for Creativity & Arts is now accepting nominations for its Community Impact Awards. Each year two awards are given out; artists, administrators, educators, activists or supporters in any or all disciplines are all welcome to apply. All nominees must have worked or resided in DeKalb or Fulton counties. Nominations are also being accepted for awards that recognize contributions made by an Emory alum, faculty member, student, staff member, and campus arts volunteer to the artistic community at Emory. All nominations must be submitted by MON., AUG. 1, 5 p.m., at http://creativity.emory.edu/creativity-awards.shtml. Winners will be announced at the Emory Creativity & Arts Soiree, Sept. 9.

And finally, this time it's for real: After a false alarm last year on April Fool's Day, Wren's Nest Executive Director Lain Shakespeare has announced that he's leaving his post. But he's not going far. Shakespeare will remain involved with the nonprofit as the chair of its board of directors.
