Atlanta, GA --  (submitted by Sarah Gates) Throughout the month of June, the sun isn’t the only thing that will be shining across Atlanta. A unique exhibition titled “Light Up Atlanta” will be offering Atlantans the chance to soak up some local art and culture during their daily commute.

On Wednesday in a ceremony at Five Points, C.H. Briggs and MARTA will unveil glowing art installations made primarily of DuPont™ Corian® that will be on display at MARTA stations across the Atlanta. Each item in the exhibition was created by Atlanta-based architects and designers to celebrate the local creative community

C.H. Briggs, a leading local distributor of specialty building products, commissioned the placement of seven sculptural pieces—some illuminated— in six of the city’s busiest MARTA stations. Each item in the exhibition was created by members of the Atlanta architecture and design community to reflect how the city inspires them.

LOCAL PROFILE: The LGBT Community in Atlanta

LOCAL PROFILE: The LGBT Community in Atlanta

ATLANTA -- According to The Advocate, the U.S. based national gay and lesbian newsmagazine, Atlanta holds the title of “America’s gayest city” and Gay Atlanta, a subsidiary of the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau says that Atlanta is the “epicenter of the LGBT South” but according to Phillip Rafshoon of Outwrite Bookstore, Atlanta is just a “progressive city in a conservative state, that’s in a conservative region of the United States. The city serves as a place where people from small, southern towns can come to be who they want to be” which is why the LGBT community loves to call this city, home.

In the nook that is Tenth Street and Piedmont Road, Outwrite Bookstore has been a staple in the Atlanta LGBT community for about 18 years.
