One of the most interesting developments on the international art scene today
is the growth of so-called Ecological Art -- art created in direct response to
the environmental crisis. Everywhere, artists are voicing their concern,
creating works to dramatize this concern, and working directly on the earth
itself -- sculpting it, transmuting it -- to repair the damage done.

The Fairlie-Poplar National Register District is seeking advice and ideas for a public arts iniative. The Fairlie-Poplar district is Atlanta's turn-of-the-century central business district, which was developed between the late 1800's and early 1900's. The district is characterized by Victorian and Art Nouveau commercial structures. We are interested in public art (sculpture, murals, etc.) which blend with existing architecture, and reflect the areas history and historic purpose. The Fairlie-Poplar Implementation Task Force is interested in promoting the area as a mecca for the arts, attracting gallaries, theaters, and other public arts facilities. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
