Decatur Box Project Talk + Walk (CM | 1.5)
November 22, 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Larry Holland of Fishbone Art and organizer of Secret Doors Decatur, with the support of the Decatur Arts Alliance and the Decatur Downtown Development Authority, is back at it with a new public art initiative: the Decatur Box Project. You may have seen the handful of traffic signal boxes at intersections around town that have been transformed from their drab, gray and corroded metal into colorful, whimsical works of art. What a fun addition to Decatur’s outdoor gallery!
Phase one was completed with boxes designed and painted by local artists Larry Holland, Nick Madden, Gerry ‘Madness’ Gorman and Catlanta. Now in its second and final phase, 23 artists have been selected to bring more boxes to life in and around downtown Decatur.
We’ll begin with a talk at the Decatur City Hall and then set out on a one-mile loop walking tour to see and hear about 8 transformed boxes. Afterwards, we’ll walk over to Leon’s for Bocce (appetizers on GPA)!

Time: 3:30 PM – 5:00 PM
