On display on the Alabama Street above Underground Atlanta, is a public art installation by artists Lisa Tuttle and Alice Lovelace. Itâ€™s a three-dimensional, multifaceted grouping of polyptych towers paying homage to one of the worldâ€™s most notable feminist and civil rights activistsâ€”Harriet Tubman.
The project is a part of Atlantaâ€™s Office of Cultural Affairs Public Art Program (OCA/PAP) and was brought to fruition through a heroic collaboration with Underground Atlanta in a joint effort called Elevate / Art Above Underground.
First launched in August, 2011, OCA/PAP says that by funding artists and art collaborators via Elevant, they hope to create a series of simultaneous art projects and cultural events â€śthat promises to transform central downtown Atlanta.â€ť
Additional information about the Elevate project can be found here, and in a recent podcast, Tuttle spoke about her â€śHarriet Risingâ€ť collaboration with Lovelace.
