Atlanta Celebrates Photography and the City of Atlanta Department of Aviation Art Program announce a special temporary exhibition of fine art photography showcasing Georgia's natural landscape. The exhibition, featuring the work of 21 photographers has been installed in the new Maynard H. Jackson International Terminal, which opened May 16th. The exhibition graces the corridors leading arriving passengers to the Immigrations Processing area, and will be exhibited for at least one year.
Georgia boasts one of the most diverse ecosystems in the country, with five distinct natural regions. To capture the beauty and diversity of these regions, ACP and the Airport Art Program have assembled a collection of 44 photographs that provide a view of our State through the eyes of a select group of artists:
Jerry Atnip, Hazel Berger, Reis Birdwhistell, Lucinda Bunnen, Paul Conlan, Richard Ediger, David Foster, Karekin Goekjian, Paul Hagedorn, Wanda Hopkins, Jan Kapoor, Diane Kirkland, Kathryn Kolb, Judy Lampert, Mark Malloy, Kevin Nickell, Donna Rosser, Anderson Scott, Marilyn Suriani, Meryl Truett and Phil Winter.
This installation is the result of a partnership between the City of Atlanta Department of Aviation Art Program and Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP). The exhibition was curated by Corinne Adams, an Atlanta based photographer and co-founder of Atlanta Celebrates Photography and Amy Miller, Executive Director of Atlanta Celebrates Photography; in association with the Airport Art Program.
The Airport Art Program's mission is to enrich the airport environment with beautiful and thought-provoking artwork.
ACP promotes the art form of photography and organizes the annual citywide "Atlanta Celebrates Photography" Festival in the month of October – the largest community-oriented photography festival in the United States.
