Georgia Tech Arts commissioned ARTiculate ATL to bring together local artists with the Georgia Tech student body to create a dynamic mural. On April 2, 3, and 4 the artists will create the outline of the mural's components on three panels installed on the exterior of the Ferst Center for the Arts.
On April 13 and 15 you'll be able to pick up a paint brush and fill it in yourself! Check the APP events calendar for more information about the painting sessions.
ARTiculate ATL is a 501(c)(3) non-profit based in Atlanta that provides local, emerging artists a professional environment to showcase and sell their artwork. For this project, ARTiculate ATL is bringing Charity “Cake” Hamidullah and George Galbreath together to design a unique mural, Create Your Way, that showcases how the Georgia Tech community plugs into their creativity.
ARTiculate ATL explains the work:
"In a triptych of panels, Create Your Way tells a story of imagination becoming reality through the powers of creativity. As the young man on the right paints upon the canvas his visions begin to come alive in various artistic disciplines. In this piece, an electrifying color palette is incorporated to symbolize the diversity of the student body and the elements of light that are within us. As the colors harmoniously unite, they begin to flow as one in a common journey of life as creative beings. Through the use of varied line-weights and color choices, various details will begin to dance from the foreground to background across the panels. Where the story begins and ends is up to the viewers’ eyes and thoughts, but it is our intention to inspire as well as ignite the student body."
