Judson Mitchell, reading from "Inspired Georgia" exhibition at SlowExposures, Sept. 14-17th
ATLANTA — The Georgia Department of Economic Development’s Georgia Council for the Arts (GCA) today announced the host cities for their Inspired Georgia photo exhibit tour. Georgia communities hosting the exhibit include Zebulon, Milledgeville, Rome, Vidalia, Statesboro, and Albany.

"We are thrilled to be able to partner with institutions across Georgia to share an exhibit of the images featured in Inspired Georgia,” said Karen Paty, executive director of the Georgia Council for the Arts. "Each venue will serve as a host for these remarkable photographs as well as literary events celebrating local poets. Together, the book, the exhibit and these readings allow us to further champion the incredible artists that by birth or by choice, have found their muse in Georgia.”

The full list of 2017-2018 dates and venues is below:

October 4, 2017 - October 26, 2017
Georgia College and State University, Leland Gallery - Milledgeville, Georgia

November 1, 2017 - November 16, 2017

The book, Inspired Georgia, is a co-publication with Georgia Council for the Arts, Georgia Poet Laureate Judson Mitcham, Atlanta Celebrates Photography and Georgia Humanities. Inspired Georgia is a unique collection of Georgia's contemporary poets and photographers that engages the history and culture of the state, while serving as a document of some of the best and most powerful pieces penned by Georgia poets and images shot by Georgia photographers in recent years. The book was recently named one of the ten "Books All Georgians Should Read” for 2017 by the Georgia Center for the Book and was a finalist in the specialty book category for the "Georgia Author of the Year.” The book is available through UGA Press.

Introducing “Everyday Atlanta”


Since the spring, we've been collaborating with Austin Merrill and Peter DiCampo's "Everyday Projects" to create "Everyday Atlanta," a positive, daily look at the ins-and-outs of life in our city.

In the first phase of the project this Spring, we worked with two local high schools (Riverwood & Tri-Cities) on how students can use photography to dispel stereotypes. Over the summer, the project has moved to Instagram at @everyday_atlanta for its second, more public phase.

A current list of participating photographers in @everyday_atlanta includes:

Audra Melton - @audramelton
Billy Howard - @billyhowardfoto
Enrique Samson - @enriquesamson
Kevin D. Liles - @kevindliles
Marilyn Suriani - @mar618
Matthew Rond - @matthewrond
Robert "Q." Oliver - @film_god
Rachel LaCour Niesen - @rachellacour
Raymond McCrea Jones - @raymondmccrea

The third phase will be a public installation on MARTA, weaving together the 1st two phases, coming Oct. 1st!
