10 days of recovery

Sure it took me 10 days to recover but I'm alive again and want to thank everyone for such a super fun day. ARTlantis brought out around 700 people to view some incredible and unconventional art as well as phenominal bands. The bands were a huge hit and all sounded great. The granite steps and column of the church made for an awesome stage and thanks to Judi Chicago the neighbors across the street got a free lap dance!

Super thanks go out to all the artists, artists friends, bands, volunteers, Criminal, Aurora, R.Land, the Jurors, and the staff at Druid Hills Baptist Church for being so helpful, supportive, and generous!

I really feel like ARTlantis made the whole festival thing much more enjoyable. Usually the booths at festivals host commercially boring reproduction artists from other states. Instead we hosted some of the best local and original art from emerging Atlanta-based artists. We also had a prestegious group of Jurors who awarded the first annual ARTlantis awards. More on that and our upcoming photo contest soon . . . (check back in a week or so)
