Art on the Atlanta BeltLine artists’ walks + workshop

As the request for proposals has gone out, we’ve gotten a ton of questions about when our artists’ walks are going to be. We now have them scheduled! This is an opportunity for submitting artists to walk the corridor with members of the Art on the Atlanta BeltLine committee, ask questions about siting their piece, and explore location options. The dates / times are as follows:
>> Saturday, March 12th – East Side Walk at 11 a.m.: beginning at Memorial Drive beside H. Harper’s Station and ending at 10th and Monroe Drive beside Park Tavern.
>> Sunday, March 13th – West Side Walk at 11 a.m.: beginning at Washington Park (at Lena St.) and ending at Allene Avenue and Catherine Street.
>> Saturday, March 19th – West Side Walk at 11 a.m.: beginning at Washington Park (at Lena St.) and ending at Allene Avenue and Catherine Street.
>> Sunday, March 20th – East Side Walk at 11 a.m.: beginning at Memorial Drive beside H. Harper’s Station and ending at 10th and Monroe Drive beside Park Tavern.
We’ve also set up one more artists’ workshop:

Atlanta’s West End/ Westview Neighborhoods…home to the unexpected

Do you know your neighbor? Yes, you may know his/her name, whether or not they have kids or pets…but do you REALLY know your neighbor?

It has shocked many newcomers to in town Atlanta living that West End and Westview communities both are homes to some of the most respected known, unknown and behind the scene Artists, Politicians and Professionals. In just a few streets, our 1920 Bungalows are home to City Council Representatives and President, as well as Doctors, Lawyers, Architects, Writers, Artists and Fashion Designers.

Then why was it a surprise to me when I realized Fashion Designer Chloe Harper, of Vitamin C Clothing , is the same Chloe Harper who is my ‘911 neighborhood watch’ txt buddy??!! Apparently, in addition to being extremely talented, Ms Harper is also very humble about her accomplishments. Check out her line and some of the celebs now wearing her line: http://www.vitamincclothing.com/

If  you’re in the market for a new home, drop me a line- like many of our other home owners, you will be very surprised to find the hidden gems inside these communities!
