Tiny Doors ATL
Hi, Friends! We are Tiny Doors ATL, a public art installation brought to you by Karen Anderson, Sarah Meng, and the enthusiasm of the good people of Atlanta! Tiny Doors ATL brings big wonder to tiny spaces through the installation of small doors in public spaces. With the installation of a door, what was once a wall or the column of a bridge becomes an entrance to collective creativity.
We are dedicated to free and accessible art for people of all ages and abilities. You will never have to buy a ticket to see one of our doors. The cause closest to our hearts is encouraging community by bringing people together through art. If you’re new to Tiny Doors ATL, you can read more about us here.
We are raising funds to keep the project active for everyone to enjoy! We have come up with a fundraiser that reflects the project’s creative and collective spirit. In December, we’ll be installing a new door. The exact location is top-secret, but we can tell you the door will be created to fit the vibe of Cabbagetown. Here’s the cool part; we are surrounding the door with bricks and paver stones personalized by you! This isn’t just an opportunity to support a rad public art project. It’s a chance to give a unique gift for the holidays, share a personalized message with Atlanta, and add your name to a public art project with widespread impact.
Our public art door installations are, ya know, public. For this reason, we can’t publish anything that might violate personal privacy like phone numbers or addresses. Other than that, if it’s PG we’ll put that shiz on a brick!
Your personalized bricks and paver stones will be created and installed with quality materials and attention to detail. We can promise care and maintenance, but we cannot promise immortality. Part of the fun of this project is the risk of public art. Jump in with us!
Where is the money going?
We all want neighborhoods with curb appeal! We dedicate 10 to 15 hours every week to maintaining the doors. It costs us about $250 weekly in time, tiny hardware, landscaping, replacement of major doors parts, and additional supplies.
Funds raised through this campaign will allow us to replace our wooden doors with the improved and much more durable resin doors.
In addition, 8% of all funds raised for Tiny Doors ATL will go to our fiscal sponsor organization C4 Atlanta. You can read more about C4 Atlanta here.
