Art has the power to educate and transform both people and communities. That’s the reason Mayor Maynard Jackson aggressively increased the City’s art collection – to reflect the diverse palette of its residents.
Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has reinforced that legacy with her One Atlanta principles, using art to inspire and build thriving neighborhoods. Camille Russell Love is the Executive Director of the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA) and oversees the City’s vast collection of artworks.
Recently we spoke with Kevin Sipp, Gallery 72 Project Supervisor and Co-Public Art Manager for the “Art On Loan” Program for the OCA. Sipp’s deep knowledge of Atlanta’s art portfolio is thorough and impressive. We asked him to show us where the City keeps the good stuff when it’s not on public display.
