Oct. 19-26 2013
From the venue:The City of Atlantaâ€™s Office of Cultural Affairs has assembled a week-long schedule of artistic events in Downtown Atlanta for this yearâ€™s Elevate. Things kick off with a block party in the Fairlie-Poplar district on the night of Fri., Oct. 18, and wrap up on Sat., Oct. 26, with French-themed dance performance at the Rialto Center for the Arts. In between, the week will feature everything from a play called Mass Transit Muse, which literally happens on a MARTA ride to Five Points station on Oct. 24 and 25, to â€œCivil Sound Ecology,â€ a civil rights-themed walking tour featuring audio and art installations by William Schweigert. Throughout the week, look for Beth Maloneâ€™s brilliant neon signs, which will be hung around vacant storefronts in the neighborhood.
