Over the weekend I had the pleasure of attending BOOM CITY – 12 artist // one floor presented by dashboard CO-OP.  This wonderful display of 12 new artist was held at the historical M. Rich Building in downtown Atlanta.  Post about this building coming soon!

In my previous post about dashboard CO-OP, I mentioned this event and their mission to promote contemporary artist… my hat goes off to this dynamic duo Courtney Hammond and Beth Malone.  The exhibit was AMAZING as 12 new artist from Atlanta, New Orleans and New York were able to show their work with such class, respect and appreciation.

I got a kick out of a very interesting performance by Artist: BEN GOLDMAN dressed as a bird 🙂

My Highlight:  Meeting photographer Thomas and his twin lens Mamiyaflex camera!


The support for this effort is definitely worth mentioning as hundreds of people attended with over 30 organizers. I truly enjoyed this event and look forward to the next one!

Enjoy the pics!
