ACP is pleased to announce that Atlanta-based photographer and artist Beth Lilly has been selected by a panel of jurors to create ACP's Public Art Project for ACP 11. Her project, “Gifted”, will engage the public and transform Atlanta through the gift of 1,200 limited-edition, fine art photographs which will be distributed to the public for free during the month of October.

Beth Lilly has curated a collection of twelve photographs from participating local photographers and with oversight from the artists, created limited-edition prints (100 of each photograph, totaling 1200 prints). These artworks will be handed out free, as gifts to the public, throughout the Atlanta metro region during the ACP festival in October, in unexpected places, at unannounced times. The dates and locations for obtaining a free print will not be disclosed in advance (but you may want to keep an eye on twitter to find out when the Gifted team hits the street).

Selected from a competitive open call for proposals, Beth Lilly's project was most suited to ACP's public art mission, to infuse Atlanta with photography in an exciting, unpredictable way that directly impacts Atlantans within the flow of their daily lives. Lilly's project is also an attempt to find and cultivate new appreciators of photography and the photographic print, by providing a professionally-printed "starter print" for a potential collector. The exchange will promote local photographers while encouraging a rich dialogue about the act of gifting valuable art for free, as well as an oblique commentary on the current economy.

Photographers participating in this project include: Corinne Adams, David Walter Banks, William Boling, John Bohannon, Christian Bradley West, Diane Kirkland, Kathryn Kolb, Lynn Marshall-Linnemeier, Pam Moxley, Laura Noel, Dorothy O’ Connor, & Michael West.
