2020 CULTURAL ALLIANCE PARTNERS

Each year, the Atlanta Dogwood Festival teams up with some of the city’s most vibrant arts organizations, which offer hands-on activities and demos at the festival. We’re excited to announce this year’s Cultural Alliance Partners, including:

 

High Museum of Art Atlanta

High Museum of Art Atlanta

With more than 15,000 works of art in its permanent collection, the High has an extensive anthology of nineteenth- and twentieth-century American and decorative art; significant holdings of European paintings; a growing collection of African American art; and burgeoning collections of modern and contemporary art, photography, folk and self taught art, and African art. The High is also dedicated to supporting and collecting works by Southern artists.

Smartglass

Smart Glass Jewelry offers onsite jewelry making demos throughout festival weekend. The organization was founded by designer Kathleen Plate who started selling her jewelry in small boutiques in the 1990s. Her innovative work was recognized by corporations such as Coca-Cola and Aveda, who commissioned Plate to create jewelry from their product packaging. Smart Glass has achieved commercial success while remaining true to the values of craft and recycling.

Zoo Atlanta

Zoo Atlanta

Opened in 1889, Zoo Atlanta is the oldest cultural institution in the city. Zoo Atlanta is home to more than 1,400 animals, representing more than 200 species from around the world. From behind-the-scenes Wild Encounters with exotic animals to a leisurely stroll through The Ford African Rain Forest or a Scaly Slimy Spectacular reptile and amphibian experience, Zoo Atlanta offers something for everyone.

Out of Hand Theater

Out of Hand Theater

Since 2001, Out of Hand has created shows, games and activities in Atlanta. We design custom entertainment and activities for businesses, we provide free arts training to Metro Atlanta kids, and we collaborate with civic organizations to address regional issues.

The Dogwood Fairy needs YOU to save the summer! Help the Dogwood Fairy find her missing magical incantation to bring the summer season, flowers, and festivities. Along the way you will meet both friend and foe, including a troll, fortune teller, elf, and bard. But you will have to hurry! You only have a limited time to solve the puzzles and find the incantation before the season is lost. Gather your team and see if you have what it takes!

The Dogwood Quest is an adventure theater puzzle hunt and will take place at the Dogwood Festival in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park on Saturday, August 8th at 2pm. The Quest is free to play, but registration is required. Stop by our booth prior to 2pm to pick up your race bib and other things you’ll need to complete your quest. Play on a team of 2 – 5.

Artist Spotlight - Kimmy Cantrell, College Park, GA
Kimmy enjoys developing fresh variations on several recurring themes: faces, still lifes, nudes and fish. Kimmy uses many forms to tell his stories, from free standing sculptures to still life collages. He uses asymmetry to challenge traditional definitions of beauty. “I want to show the beauty within flaws,” he explains. “Imperfections tell stories that are far more compelling than perfection.” See more and purchase at www.kimart.com

Artist Spotlight - Signe and Genna Grushovenko have been married since 1999 and collaborating for nearly as long. Genna begins their process by applying rich layers of pattern and tone to gessoed masonite or linen supports. Signe then selects an inspiration image from their extensive collection of vintage found photos, draws with oil pastel atop the abstract underlayer using the photo for reference, and completes the image with blocky 'panes' of oil color.
The final results of their collaboration are multi-layered paintings with deep surfaces, crisp at first glance but rewarding the careful viewer with an undercurrent of complex tonality and colorplay.
