About the Artists:

Julia Venske and Gregor Spänle began collaborating in 1991, and have developed a reputation for their enigmatic marble sculptures. Their work has been shown in museums, galleries, and art fairs around the world. In Atlanta, they are represented by Marcia Wood Gallery.

About Midtown Alliance’s Public Art & Street Activation Program:

Initiated in 2012, this program enlivens the public realm with visual points of interest that invite conversation and interaction. Reinforcing Midtown Atlanta’s identity as the “Heart of the Arts,” human-scaled projects enhance Midtown’s sense of community and walkability. Our efforts focus on curating temporary installations that enable the freedom to test ideas.

We look forward to seeing you there!
