Off the Wall Community Conversation: Atlanta Civil Rights through Public Art
Event Details
August 17, 2018
7:00 p.m.–8:30 p.m.
High Museum of Art
Hill Auditorium

Off the Wall is a city-wide initiative led by WonderRoot and the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee from June 2018 through February 2019. With murals, media, and community conversations, Off the Wall will share Atlanta’s social justice journey and elevate key stories in our city’s pursuit of civil rights, human rights, and a more equitable future for all Atlantans.

Nine muralists selected by our Artist Selection Committee will work with community partners to design and install artworks that represent the long journey toward a brighter future, and mural subjects will be informed by community conversations. Once all murals have been completed, the collection will be turned over to the City of Atlanta to be included in its public art collection.

Emory University’s Center for Ethics, in partnership with the High Museum of Art, will host a Community Conversation on August 17 at 7 p.m. to discuss in detail the role of public art and its relationship to civil and human rights—particularly representation, accessibility, and gentrification and housing. We hope you will join us!
