Athens Cultural Affairs Commission has been awarded a $12,000 Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts for the project, Hot Corner: An Athens Legacy.
The Commission is currently seeking feedback from community members (especially those with an interest in or connection to the history of Hot Corner).
Hot Corner: An Athens Legacy is a community-designed mural to amplify the often silenced African American voice through visual art. The mural and associated outreach programs will engage audiences in the rich history of Hot Corner—the locus of African American entrepreneurship in our community. The Commission looks forward to partnering with Morton Theater and other Hot Corner stakeholders. A national call for artists will be facilitated in the coming months.
