A look at the Atlanta arts scene and creative youth culture
Art on the Beltline: A.M.F.M. Fest
The August Art, Music, Film and Music Festival promoted and sponsored by Art on the Beltline offered a platform for artists to showcase their works as well as creative fun for the community to enjoy all weekend. The event was hosted in part by The Bakery, a community arts space open to creative, like minded individuals, and a shining beacon of the DIY arts scene in Atlanta. The festival included participation and showcases from the National Black Arts Festival and ARTlanta. Art on the Beltline also confirms further partnership with the Bakery later in the season, as well as community art events.
Outliers and American Vanguard Art
The Outliers and American Vanguard Art exhibit is being held by the High Museum of art up until the conclusion of September. The exhibit itself, while starting out with a cookie cutter monotony, ended with an array of color. It's multidisciplinary finale left a distinct impression on the viewer, however, the diversity and complexity within the exhibit was detracted from by its lack luster start. But, though the beginning was nothing short of a massive disappointment, the mid to last galleries truly displayed the beauty of the development of Vanguard art.
