ACP 2021 Festival Guide

We are Atlanta, We are The Phoenix

For this groundbreaking public art exhibit, Atlanta’s iconic symbol of rebirth will be rendered in an interactive photo-mural featuring dozens of photographs showcasing the city’s collaborative spirit. Intriguing images of the people that make Atlanta great were selected from a call for entries, and combined into an artistic interpretation of a phoenix. A collective portrait of our city, The Phoenix will be brought to life via augmented reality with a 3D animation experience viewable on any mobile device pointed at the mural.

The Phoenix has been made possible by our project sponsors: Alston + BirdMailchimp, and Fulton County Arts Council.
