ATLANTApix: Emory Chairs Project

Emory Bench Sculpture
Emory Bench Sculpture
Art is prevalent throughout Atlanta as it is throughout the college campuses in Atlanta. One pristine example of such, carved from Georgia marble, is the "Emory Bench Sculpture" from the 2003 Emory Chairs Project.

Located between the Fishburne Drive parking deck and the Michael C. Carlos Museum,
this particular "chair" (photo) was created by Horace L. Farlowe (1933-2006).

It is one of 37 installations, organized in honor of the opening of the Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts, that were spread throughout the campus during the exhibition, indoors and outdoors.

I love this particular work because its beauty tells you that it's obviously a work of art, but it's enticingly inviting at the same time.

ATLANTApix and ATLANTAvidz of the tourATLANTA blog features a daily photo or video relative to Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
