Hosted annually in downtown Atlanta, ELEVATE instills city-wide cultural growth by exhibiting large-scale public artwork/installations and offers performances, educational opportunities and cultural experiences free to the public. This year’s curator Fahamu Pecou is internationally known and his works combine observations on hip-hop, fine art and popular culture. Pecou’s works have been featured in the FOX drama Empire and ABC’s hit comedy Black-ish.
