AN ARTS PLAZA POP-UP EVENT
SMILE, the Georgia Tech student organization dedicated to building a happier campus community, will lead you in an old-school, paint-by-numbers party! Georgia Tech Arts commissioned ARTiculate ATL to bring together local artists with the Georgia Tech student body to create a dynamic mural.
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" Hamiduallah and George Galbreath together to design a unique mural, Create Your Way, that showcases how the Georgia Tech community plugs into their creativity. In early April the professional artists will create the outline, and on April 13 and 15 you'll have the opportunity to fill it in! Drop in to either session, and be prepared for a potential splatter zone!
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."
