Giving art the space to transform

aka Flux Projects   |   Atlanta, GA   |  www.fluxprojects.org

Mission

Flux Projects commissions public art that invites audiences in Atlanta to explore the city’s sites and stories as a means to imagining its future possibilities. These projects disrupt the everyday and inspire imagination, wonder, and awe. They support artists to take risks and grow their practices whether they are internationally acclaimed or producing their first public work. They create communal spaces for people of all walks of life. And they bring a location’s past, present and future into conversation in ways that open our eyes to new possibilities. Flux Projects gives art the space to transform.
