Art in downtown Atlanta

Thursday evening I took MARTA to downtown Atlanta. I got off at the Peachtree Center station and walked to Centennial Olympic Park to ride SkyView. I don’t spend much time in downtown ATL, but┬áthe stroll┬áreminded me what a vibrant, artistic city this is. Here are just a few views:

Unveiled in November 2011, this playground structure was designed to be a central part of the rejuvenated Woodruff Park. The original design was conceived by Jeff Santos of Coquitlam, British Columbia. Santos was the winner of the Playable 10 Contest, held in partnership by Landscape Structures, Georgia Institute of Technology, Central Atlanta Progress (CAP), Atlanta’s Taskforce on Play (ATOP) and Bank of America. The playground’s design pays tribute to Atlanta with a shape that mimics the letters “ATL.” Built into the piece are various playable elements, including climbing walls, monkey bars and two different sizes of slides.

These two were filling the air with music. Hope they made a lot.

Called “No Goal is Too High if We Climb with Care and Confidence” All rightly, then!
