ATLANTA (October 12, 2021) — The Atlanta Pride Committee announces the launch of a public art program this October. As part of the ELEVATE Atlanta public arts festival, Atlanta Pride will be colorizing 1000 feet of sidewalk as a "Living Rainbow." The Atlanta Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs awarded Atlanta Pride a grant for this project, which will be on display the weekend of October 15-17. This artwork will be free and open to the public but will only be temporarily on display during the scheduled ELEVATE Atlanta weekend of events in the Westside neighborhood. Rose Circle Park is located at 900 Rose Circle, SW. Mark your calendars and come out to see the work, because it will be washed away on October 18!
The material used for this project is an eco-friendly colored powder made of corn starch and other food-safe and cosmetic-grade natural colors. Large blocks of the sidewalk in Rose Circle Park will be colorized using the colors from the Rainbow Pride flag. Over the course of the installation, as people walk over the sidewalks, the colors will blend into a Living Rainbow that keeps on changing the more viewers interact with the work.
