Project 1960
Downtown Atlanta
Featuring work by: Sheila Pree Bright

Other: Fri, Oct 18, to Sat, Oct 26 2013

Inspired by the Civil Rights Era, Sheila Pree Bright's new photographic series works as an innovative platform of American history never told. The project will function as an art exhibition and online campaign presented in effort to raise generational awareness of terroristic struggles, but more importantly to influence neighborhoods to think critically about community building as a team. Phase one of the ‘1960 WHO’ art street project will launch in Atlanta then travel to other locations in the country. Life-sized portraits of the Atlanta Student Movement will be display in the urban landscape as an art gallery on significant public walls in communities where acts of social injustices have transpired. The collection of portraits depict ordinary and grassroots people who placed their lives on the line during the Civil Rights Movement. They were the youth of the ‘1960s.’
