ATLANTA -- Elevate Week, the Office of Cultural Affairs' large scale public art project, will begin Friday, Oct. 18 at locations throughout the city.
Muralists and performance groups will create art with the theme "Transit: Time, People and Places" through Saturday, Oct. 26.
"I am excited by this year's program because it is a testament to the evolving role of public art in the cultural and economic development of Atlanta," Eddie Granderson, public art program manager for the Office of Cultural Affairs, said in a statement. "We are growing Atlanta's reputation as a cultural destination through public art."
MARTA has partnered with the program to design a special Elevate bus. Route 49 will drive past much of the Elevate artwork, giving riders the opportunity to see it.
