What We Do

Roswell In Print 

Launched in the fall of 2020, Roswell in Print is a brand new, outdoor photography exploration in three parts designed to highlight the diverse characteristics of the City of Roswell, using visual storytellers to capture it through beautiful, compelling imagery and displayed in non-traditional spaces.

Art in Unexpected Places

The current pandemic has momentarily closed the doors for many traditional spaces dedicated to art but the desire for connection and creative experiences is thriving. Roswell has a wealth of nontraditional outdoor spaces to explore and there is an opportunity to curate unique and unexpected experiences for neighborhoods throughout the city.

Roswell Arts Fund, in partnership with the Hagan Family Foundation, Getty Images and the City of the Roswell saw an opportunity to curate unique and unexpected experiences for neighborhoods throughout the city.

Additionally, to support our artists all images shown in the exhibit were available to purchase and 70% of every sale will go directly to the artist!

2020 - 2021: An Exploration in Three Parts

Roswell in Print will have three distinct installations in different outdoor locations that allow for safe and socially distanced experiences. Each exploration will take inspiration from the characteristics that define
the community of Roswell, GA: Modern Spirit, Southern Soul. Through an extensive public engagement process, we have come to understand that spirit by asking the people of Roswell who they are and what is important to their community. The unique elements that emerged from those conversations became the themes at the core of this photography exhibition.

In each exhibit, the visual storytellers featured will span countries and generations. We hope that these photographs, inspired by Roswell’s essence, will convey a universal message of belonging, a welcoming sense of community that travels beyond our city limits and resonates with viewers near and far.

 

Exploration One: "We Are Our Colors" (December 2020 - February 2021)

The first theme photographers were invited to explore was “We Are Our Colors”.

“Blossoming, vibrant, scenic, consequential, sustainable. Telling our story through artwork and color paints a picture that is lively, vivacious, leafy, and lush. If our city is a canvas for art, our history, physical surroundings, and the spirit of our people are the palette. “ – Public Art Master Plan, Roswell Arts Fund and the City of Roswell, 2017.

The first exploration was installed at East Village Shopping Center, made possible through the support and partnership of the redevelopment team ECI Ventures, LLC and The Ardent Company East Village REO, LLC.
