This publication is committed to providing fresh dialogue on contemporary art without charging subscription fees, without sacrificing trees for a monthly printed edition, and, above all, through articles written with smarts and soul. BURNAWAY runs on community support from generous individuals like you.
Please join us in Cabbagetown this Saturday, May 21, 2011, from 6-9PM, as we extend the conversation with an intimate chat with Ben Venom, a San Francisco-based artist who returns to Atlanta with love for the city that gave him his start. Kristin Juárez, the columnist behind The Fringe, will represent BURNAWAY as facilitator for the talk and Q&A, examining what it means to be a Southern artist working outside the South, as well as what it means to be a newcomer in Atlanta. The chat seeks to build a more constructive conversation following the debate incited by last month’s article, “Why do young artists leave Atlanta?” Join our Facebook event page or see below for more details.
