Local Stories is a brand new digital exhibition in Downtown Atlanta, delving into its rich history as told by locals. Using creative storytelling to present lesser-known facts about the area, eight Atlanta artists were each asked to interpret a local story through a visual lens, and they’re finally on display!
This stunning exhibit was curated by EuGene V. Byrd III, Corey Oberlander, and Lindsey Stapleton. They selected the artists to create this epic love-letter to Downtown Atlanta, including Alexis Childress, Na’iim Shareef, Na’iim Shareef, and more.
