50 Upper Alabama St
Creatives of all practices will join Underground Atlanta’s latest art initiative, Underground Creative Carts Collective. Launching Saturday, July 24, Underground invites the community to watch as a group of artists revive the previously used wooden cart kiosks into art pieces along the property’s Upper Alabama Street.
Every other weekend until December, six permanent artists, including Colm Jenkins, Amanda Semler, Reggie Griffin, Danae Antione, Ting (They/Them) and Patricia Hernandez and four rotating artists will transform one of Underground’s formerly used wooden cart kiosks into unique art pieces. Each artist will have an interactive element to their cart for visitors to enjoy, such as live art curation and/or art available for purchase.
The first gathering will take place on Saturday, July 24, starting at 2 p.m. until 9 p.m. on the red bricks along Upper Alabama Street. There will be food and beverages for purchase, as well as a photo booth experience. Music and performance art will also be part of each gathering, with live music from local musicians and DJs.
Atlanta-based artist Monet Rumford is curating the Underground Creative Carts Collective. Her goal is to create a diverse and engaging experience for community members of all ages and provide a platform for emerging talent to showcase their art.
Artists will be sourced from both Underground’s Art & Industry, an Atlanta-based gallery and co-working space, as well as through open calls via Underground Creative Carts Collecive’s social media channels, @AtlUGCreativeCartsMarket. Reggie Griffin, a local Atlanta artist and member of Art & Industry, will be one of the permanent artists featured throughout the Underground Creative Carts Collective series.
