A (new) Genre Landscape
Reinventing the notion of a public park

Office of Cultural Affairs – Atlanta, 2008


Human social systems have the ability to unite and create change, inspiration and connection. Can the networks, systems and fields of the “public park” create a new social landscape?  Seventeen Atlanta artists examined new contexts of working with a local community through the creation of temporary site-specific “artscapes” conceptually and historically informed by contemporary art theory, site specific response and public practice.  Voted “Best Public Art” in 2009.
