It's been half a decade since R. Land's last major promenade in the public arena, but the multimedia painter, sculptor and illustrator returns Sat., JUNE 28, with SUMMERLAND, a new passel of outlandish images in the heart of Little Five Points. Land's thumbprint has been heavy in Atlanta's hipper ZIP codes his signature grotesqueries have delivered the one-two punch to diners' eyeballs at El Myr and to revelers at Buckhead's Tongue and Groove. The current show, in the now unnamed former Soul Kiss building at 1154 Euclid Ave., promises more R. Land faves, as well as a slate of collaborative works. He's not spilling the beans on exactly who he'll bring on, but former collaborators have included graffiti artist Hense, the Rev. Howard Finster and the East Atlanta Kids Club. Music and a souvenir shop complete the mix. Through July 31. $5. Opening reception, 8 p.m.; Sat.-Sun., noon-6 p.m.; Mon.-Fri., by appointment only. 1154 Euclid Ave. 404-525-0905. www.rlandart.com.
