artsy-fartsy two

Jessica alerted me to this event (ATL[art]05), which I had never heard of but now really want to go, and now Creative Loafing has an article about it and other art opportunities in the city.

The auction is the grand finale and cherry on the effervescent art soda pop, ATLart[05], Jan. 26-Feb. 6, a coordinated event between 28 galleries and four museums in Atlanta.

The event is aimed at hooking up the often balkanized factions of the city’s art scene: You know, the Bill Hallman set at Lowe Gallery, and the thrift store set at Eyedrum. Every fall, at least the event marketers hope, the barriers of taste and cash will fall and everyone will remember why they’re all in this crazy business.

Because they failed math.

I mean, because they love art.

I’m pretty sure I won’t be buying anything (poor grad student, blah blah), but I’m definitely looking forward to it. Though, as Steve pointed out, Atlanta doesn’t have enough cultural activities in it, it does have more than you (or at least I) tend to think it does.
