I have been working with a group of folks trying to make a little something happen up on the corner. The Corner Project, just south of East Atlanta Village, is an outpouring of neighbors wanting to better an unused space at a busy intersection.
I had plans to build a structure here a while ago after one of my street art installs went missing. (The Monument to Good Times). The Corner Project recently approached me, and so I showed them my plans I had wanted to build. They took it a step farther and over a few coffees worth of planning, we now are building a corner rest stop— out of the sun— rain barrel using— place to rest a minute— a neighborhood gathering spot.
It is still under construction but it was great to see it being built today. Thanks to my friends Joe Peery and Joel “Doll Head” Slaton for making this happen.
***Fact: A tin roof in the full sun is much too bright to be looked at. Trust me.***
