We are excited to announce that the final exhibition for our Spring 2022 Seminar will be taking place on Wednesday, May 4 from 8AM-10:50AM! The exhibition will be held at 960 MLK Jr Dr SW in downtown Atlanta. (Note: only street parking will be available at the venue. Please take MARTA or carpool if this is a concern.)
We will be featuring projects from this semester’s seminar class, including collages created earlier in the semester as well as their semester long projects. This semester, some of the sites include:
- Atlanta Prison Farm
- Lakewood Elementary School of Atlanta Public Schools
- Martin Luther King Jr. Drive
- Westview Cemetery
We hope to see you there!
