Ear­li­er this year, our Atlanta Civic Site team part­nered with Won­der­Root, an Atlanta non­prof­it arts and ser­vice orga­ni­za­tion, in a call for artists to cre­ate a pub­lic art instal­la­tion in south­west Atlanta’s Uni­ver­si­ty Avenue cor­ri­dor, where the Foun­da­tion owns a 31-acre site. 

In May, Won­der­Root and an advi­so­ry com­mit­tee of res­i­dents from the sur­round­ing neigh­bor­hoods select­ed local sculp­tor Fred Ajanogha as the lead artist for the project and neigh­borhod res­i­dents Eddie McBride and Katlin Rothacher as the sup­port­ing artists. Check out the Won­der­Root pod­cast to learn more about the project and the con­sid­er­able efforts that have led to this big moment.

Now we’re near­ly one week away from see­ing Ajanogha’s vision become a real­i­ty: The great unveil­ing takes place Sat­ur­day, July 12, and kicks off an entire after­noon of food, fun and more art in var­i­ous forms — an event we’re call­ing Art of Com­mu­ni­ty.
