The City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs Public Art Program, in partnership with Atlanta Conventions and Visitors Bureau announce guided public art tours downtown. Set to open on JUNE 21, 2012, these tours begin at The Courtyard at Peachtree Center within the weekly Green Market.
By taking this tour of Downtown Atlanta, residents and visitors will experience remarkable artwork by nationally and internationally recognized artists. Guides will lead you through Downtown Atlanta corridors and touch on historical sites and monuments that speak to the heart of Atlanta’s character. Learn about the Carnegie Education Pavilion and it’s correlation to de-segregation or about our Olympic monuments and how they speak to the freedom and strength of our former Atlanta leaders. This Public Art tour is a great way to learn about Atlanta’s place in history through our cultural and artistic lineage.
Enjoy the Green Market Vendors downtown after the tour! Fresh produce, Italian cheeses, fresh baked bread, organic honey, tea, King of Pops, desserts and pastries and live music will greet you when we return to Peachtree Center Plaza. What a great Downtown experience!
