Description

Purpose Possible is thrilled to share a Call for Proposals on behalf of our client, Central Atlanta Progress and City of Atlanta. 


Atlanta Legacy Makers is a public commemoration of Atlanta’s inheritance exemplified by two Atlanta mayors, Ivan Allen Jr. and Maynard Jackson. The effort aims to embrace the legacy that Atlantans—now and next—are charged to carry forward.

ART AND ARCHITECTURAL PROJECT
Central Atlanta Progress, in partnership with the City of Atlanta, is launching an open competition for commission of an exciting project at the nexus of Atlanta’s beating heart, Woodruff Park. This project will honor the legacy of our past, it will provide aspiration for our future, and it will activate our present.

It will do so by:
1. Creating a monument to honor the legacy of two pivotal Atlanta mayors: Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. and Mayor Maynard Jackson, Jr.
2. Commissioning a landmark artwork by a contemporary artist who aspires to Dr. King’s vision of Beloved Community as fervently as Atlantans do.
3. Reimagining the public space on the north side of Woodruff Park, considering how the plaza meets the street at both Peachtree Street and Auburn Avenue, as well as how the space can be utilized for this project and other public activations and gatherings.
