|Flux Projects produces exceptional and surprising temporary public art to galvanize Atlanta’s cultural curiosity. These projects engage people in their daily lives, outside of traditional arts venues, and instill a sense of wonder.Since its first project in February of 2010, Flux Projects has commissioned 94 works that have taken place in 18 neighborhoods across Atlanta and involved over 500 artists. These diverse projects have included performance (dance, music, and theater), visual art, poetry, and various forms of public interactions. They have explored the variety of public spaces within our city and engaged people individually and communally. We have put haiku poems along roadways, borrowed ladders from the community to build an installation in Freedom Park, collected secrets from Atlantans and shared them in public restrooms, put a delicate installation of shredded silk flowers on the floor at Lenox Square, and flown an aerial project over the city.
We also produce a one-night public art celebration called Flux Night, which takes place in Castleberry Hill. The event fills the streets and empty spaces of the neighborhood with projections, dance, performances, music, sound and light installations, parades, and more. It is an exciting glimpse into the range of temporary public art projects that are possible in our city and the diversity of artistic talent that we have and attract.
