Episode 72: This week Claire Maxwell speaks with Katherine Dirga, the Atlanta Airport Art Program manager, and Hope Cohn, curator of the current exhibition, E-merge. The exhibition, conceived by Hope Cohn and made possible by the Airport Art Program, brings forth a wide range of contemporary Atlanta artists and allows their work to be viewed by everyone who passes through the Atlanta airport. Some of the artists included in the year-long exhibition are Meg Aubrey, Brian Dettmer, Gyun Hur, and Michael David Murphy to name several. E-Merge is currently on view in the T-Concourse of the Hartsfield- Jackson Atlanta International Airport through January 2014.
