This week’s #AtlantaHappenings features an exciting event honoring emerging artist around the local area. The Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs will host a reception and ceremony to honor the Emerging Artist Award recipients at 6:30 pm THIS Wednesday at Chastain Art Center & Gallery. Yours Truly will be snapping away… hope to see you there!
Each year, the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs recognizes rising stars in the arts through the Emerging Artist Award which promotes the work of professional artists of notable talent and ability living and creating art within the City of Atlanta. The recipients of the 2016 Emerging Artist Award will be recognized in the categories of literary arts, fashion design, and visual arts.
The Atlanta Moon Ride is back for its fourth annual ride on Friday, June 10th. The first night-cycling event of its kind to be introduced to Atlanta, festivities include a fun, safe, 6-mile bike ride through some of Atlanta’s coolest neighborhoods. Featuring after-dark antics, participants are encouraged to ride with flair – dressing in costumes, decorative helmets, glow sticks, bullhorns – anything goes.
All proceeds from the Atlanta Moon Ride will support the work of local charity Bert’s Big Adventure, which is a nonprofit organization that provides a magical, all-expenses-paid, five-day journey to Walt Disney World® for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families.
