ATLANTApix: Threshold

"Threshold" was part of a citywide beautification project the likes I saw only once in the decades I've known Atlanta. I've said it before and I'm sure I'll say it again..."the 1996 Olympic Games was one of the best things to happen to this city."

The follow-on of the beautification project is today managed by the Atlanta Public Arts Legacy Fund, which carries on the work of the former Corporation for Olympic Development in Atlanta (CODA).

The 12 foot tall, painted bronze Threshold was created by Robert Llimos of Barcelona, home of the 1992 Olympics. Threshold was part of an Olympic cultural exchange. It stands near Underground Atlanta and only a few steps from the Atlanta Visitor Center.

ATLANTApix of the tourATLANTA blog features a "photo-of-the-day" of Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
