This Week With ACP

We've been waiting all year for this week of the Festival! On Thursday night, Chip Simone will be in conversation with Brett Abbott (Curator of Photography at the High Museum) at our "Spotlight on Local Talent" event. Friday night brings an exciting "two-fer" to The Goat Farm; a screening of our ACP Public Art project; Monica Cook's Volley, which will be playing a short walk away from the ACP Film Series.

Named "Still Motion", the ACP Film Series is a selection of ten videos, curated from an open call for submissions for excellent videos made with still cameras. From iPhones to HD-SLRs, the judges (Blake Williams of Proper Medium, Andy Ditzler of Frequent Small Meals, and ACP) selected a diverse group of videos from around-the-world for Friday's screening, and one lucky winner will receive a grand prize of $250!

Saturday morning brings the ACP Photobook Fair, now in its third year! Participating photographers and artists will have tables where you may browse their photobooks, plus Larissa Leclair from Indie Photobook Library will be in attendance, along with Fall Line Press and Shock Design. We hope you can swing by Piedmont Park (starts early, at 9am!) and see some of the fantastic, limited-edition publications that are being made today, plus, you get to see this year's My Atlanta exhibition!

Please find more detailed information in the ACP 2011 Festival Guide, the downloadable PDF, and in the printed guide available at participating venues and locations around the city.
