Atlanta Pride is the largest Pride celebration in the South, so it would be a major missed opportunity not to honor it on an epic scale. This year, The City of Atlanta will are hosting an exciting visual arts exhibit at City Hall throughout the ATL’s Pride season, showcasing the diversity of innovative visions that stand as a hallmark of Atlanta’s LGBTQ community.
Each of the artworks were selected by a jury of professionals, whose mission it was to find art that expands on what it means to be an artist who openly identifies as someone LGBTQIA+.
The 2022 Mayor’s Pride Exhibit is on display at Atlanta City Hall, in the Mayor’s suite, now open until Friday, October 21st, 2022. This exhibit is a joint effort brought to you by Mayor Andre Dickens, the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs, and the Mayor’s Division of LGBTQ Affairs.
The exhibit is also part of the ELEVATE public arts program, who focus on the city’s cultural offerings by providing free, quality cultural experiences, highlighting what makes Atlanta unique and increasing Atlanta’s cultural and economic vitality.

Speaking of public art programs, there’s an exciting exhibit currently happening on a digital screen in Downtown Atlanta. ‘Look At Them Look At Us’ delves into issues like race, class, and gender, with different themes and ideas seen throughout. The exhibit features photographic works of eight Atlanta-based emerging artists on the new digital display. For more information, click here or the link below.
