Decatur Artway to put New Sculptures in Oakhurst
August 26, 2016
Last year, the Decatur Artway put five sculptures in and around the Decatur Square in an effort to provide the public with art from different places and point of views.
Earlier this summer, the Artway, which operates under the Decatur Arts Alliance, put out an open call for artists who wanted their art to be displayed in the Decatur neighborhood of Oakhurst.
The sculptures were selected by a jury within the Arts Alliance community in July.
Last year, this was one of the works of art to be put up as part of the first Decatur Artway. The new sculptures will be featured in the Oakhurst neighborhood.
According to Angie Macon, the executive director of the Decatur Arts Alliance, the goals for the Artway are to “create a sense of place” around the city to make art accessible to everyone.
Each exhibit that the Decatur Artway has installed, including those in the Oakhurst and Decatur Square areas, will be part of a two-year temporary rotation.
As the Decatur Square sculptures get closer to the end of their term, the Oakhurst sculptures will be able to bring a new wave of art into a different area of Decatur.
