Weekend arts agenda: Audacity, in summary July 24 2009

Just two quick highlights, for social justice geeks and fans of local music, art, and basketball:

1. I'm curious to hear more about Audacity of Hoops, a public art exhibition in Mechanicsville — a neighborhood far, far away from Atlanta's mainstream districts for the arts — organized by the Dirty Truth Campaign and artist Lisa Tuttle. Several large-scale color photographs center on themes of urban blight, and provide a social context for pick-up games and other activities, on and off the court.

2. Saturday's also the night of the MINT Gallery benefit concert at WonderRoot. Acts will include Lindsay Appel, Travel by Train, Jack Carter and Old Soles Company, and Grand Prize Winner from Last Year (yes, that's their real name). And don't forget the WonderRoot cops and robbers party on Sunday!

"Frame 18" watches two worlds collide within a single image: A gray-haired businessman gasps as the sidewalk dematerializes into thin air, while a bikini-clad swimmer stands... | more...
