Metro Atlanta Chamber

Metro Atlanta Chamber

Artist: Gregor Turk

Project: Urban Tablets. Top to bottom: Paris, Atlanta, Shanghai, Buenos Aires. The series of ceramic plaques indicates global initiatives of the Chamber.

Project: The Metro Atlanta Chamber has an ongoing project of placing a collection of originals, photographs, posters, and Olympic memorabilia, throughout their offices in downtown Atlanta. Another facet of the project is ongoing documentation of the collection. The Chamber’s goal for the collection is to showcase Atlanta regional artists, and to select work that relates to the major initiatives of the organization.

The slide show below shows, in addition to Urban Tablets, a Phoenix quilt constructed by Atlanta school children for the Chamber; a corridor of images from higher education institutions belonging to the Atlanta Regional Council of Higher Education; and a photograph from the Atlanta Tornado of 2008 that damaged the Chamber’s offices.
