Artist Statement

The ColorATL BeltLine Project will be an interactive, community-engagement piece – a large-scale coloring page/wall. This piece will be all about bringing people together creatively. The basic framework and layout will be produced by our group of artists, then opened up to the public to freely color in the overall structure and design with sidewalk chalk over the course of the 3-month exhibition.
