Mason Fine Art Embraces Atlanta's Public Artists

August 2, 2015

 

 

Art galleries around the country have been challenged to provide an educational and enhancing environment for a wider audience beyond the typical elite demographic known to frequent them.

 

Michelle Obama addressed this need at the opening event for the new $420 million Whitney Museum in New York City.

 

"...there are so many kids in this country who look at places like museums... and other cultural centers and they think to themselves, ‘well, that’s not a place for me, for someone who looks like me, for someone who comes from my neighborhood."

- Michelle Obama

 

 

 

Museums and galleries around the country have in turn taken a more progressive approach, as a response, to the need to break down traditional barriers of museum culture, and to create a welcoming environment for a diverse mix attendees - age, race, and socioeconomic status.

 

More recently, Mason Fine Arts did a great job of this by not only providing an environment that welcomed visitors from all walks of life, but also  embraced Atlanta's thriving street art community.

 

Artists like, Dr. Dax, POEST and Frank Morrison were among the muralist and visual artist selected to present their work in the "Outside In" exhibition. The exhibition was on view July 31, 2015.
