What We Do

Artist Around the Table

What is Artist Around the Table?

The City of Roswell completed its Public Art Master Plan in March 2016. Although a percent for art policy has not yet become policy, Roswell Arts Fund, the city’s designated arts agency has been strengthening the public art landscape and mindset for over three years with its annual ArtAround Roswell Sculpture Tour, Street Pianos, and support and advocacy for additional murals and private developer engagement. 

We believe public art can activate the city’s Modern Spirit. Southern Soul.

The Artist Around the Table meeting is a first of its kind in our region. Five accomplished public artists (Michael Dillon, Lauren Dilllon, Gregory Johnson, Megan McKeithan, Marcus Mello) who focus on different materials and mediums (metal, light, stone, mural, mosaic, earthworks) were invited to a half day work session with four Roswell City Department representatives. Each department was given 30 minutes to present up to three of their current or future projects, followed by 30 minutes of engaging dialogue with the attending artists to explore potential integration of public art, either functionally or stand alone. The presentations were sequential. The discussion dynamic.  

Read the initial report below.   More meetings will be announced shortly.
