Event description

Description

An exhibit of 114 pieces of art created by 81 artists, Fulton County Arts and Culture is presenting the work of the Fine Art Acquisition Program for 2018. This program acquires art from Georgia-based artists through Fulton County’s percent-for-art which has invested over $200,000 into the Georgia arts community, with $180,000 into Metro Atlanta, in 2018. This artwork will be installed in 14 libraries currently under renovation throughout the County.

Since 2017, Fulton County Arts and Culture has invested $300,000 into the arts with 56 pieces of art purchased in 2017 and the additional 114 pieces in 2018. Each year more than 300 professional local artists apply, the top artwork forwarded to jurors to select the final pieces for purchase. The artwork varies from 2-D works of drawing, painting, mixed media, collage, fiber, or photography to lightweight 3-D works of sculpture that can hang on the wall. Acquired artwork is displayed in various County facilities including libraries, senior, health and art centers, and government offices.

Funding for this Program is provided by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners through a one percent allocation from the Fulton County Capital Improvement Program.
