Grant Park, established in 1883, is Atlanta’s oldest City Park. Today we go there for the pool, playground, basketball and tennis courts, picnic tables and pavilions, the Zoo Atlanta, Grant Park Recreation Center, Grant Park Farmers Market, and a variety of festivals, to run, walk our dogs, ride bikes, and enjoy the outdoors. Once neglected, Grant Park is being restored as a cherished greenspace through the tireless work of the Grant Park Conservancy. This park has earned its nickname “The People’s Playground.” Let’s go now to look and listen.
For three days this fall Flux Projects will bring a selection of projects by Atlanta artists to Grant Park. As the park celebrates 135 years, we are looking for projects that give voice to this historic greenspace, that imagine the stories it could tell, explore its ecosystem, inform us about its health, and celebrate its magic.
Projects can be installations or performances and can run anytime 6am to 11pm.
We are first asking artists to submit concepts in no more than 250 words. From this we will select a handful of artists to develop proposals.
Artists in the Atlanta area can apply.
Complete the Google form with the following information: name, address, email, telephone, website, 250-word concept description.
February 28, 2018. Artists will be notified by March 31, 2018.
