This year’s exhibition expounds upon a story developed through recent murals by Brandon Sadler on the Atlanta BeltLine over the past few years. Abhaya is a character created by the artist to represent the process of spiritual and mental development. She is seen experiencing situations that provide a light reminder of how the seasons of life move. Turning the entire North Avenue bridge into a comic book through murals of Abhaya, each panel shows her in a new season gaining a life lesson.
