ACP 10 Year End Press

Two great notices for ACP in year-end wrap-ups. One from the AJC, the other from Creative Loafing:
"ATLANTA CELEBRATES PHOTOGRAPHY has offered the city significant commissioned public art for a decade. This year, ACP turned up the heat with Bradley McCallum and Jacqueline Tarry’s “Within Our Gates” (Oct. 5-25). Installed in the Irwin Street water tower in the Old Fourth Ward, the work was a trenchant homage to Atlanta’s history of civil rights and protest from the people. Multimedia projections, atmospheric graffiti and a circulating tide pool all served as fitting metaphors for change burbling up from below. When it came to dissecting Atlanta’s fractured history, McCallum and Tarry demonstrated that sometimes outsiders have the best insight." — Cinqué Hicks [freshloaf]
"Public art: “Within Our Gates” in the Old Fourth Ward. Bradley McCallum and Jacqueline Tarry’s multisensory evocation of the civil rights era in an old water tower was a resonant matching of subject and site. Curated by Lisa Kurzner, it was sponsored by Atlanta Celebrates Photography, which continues to expand its contributions to Atlanta’s cultural life." - Catherine Fox [ajc]
