Arts and Entertainment Atlanta will also participate in PRISM by showcasing complementary artwork created by ZooasZoo and Sebastian Monroy on Peachtree Center’s newly installed digital sign at 235 Peachtree St.

Woodruff Park is open 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. There are parking garages downtown, but the park is best accessed via MARTA or the Atlanta Streetcar
