The Art of Reconciliation
The summer of 2015, we undertook an enormous and exciting project called “The Art of Reconciliation.” We are collaborated with over 200 people from multiple communities across Atlanta and at least 7 states to build an art project bigger than any individual could complete on their own. Throughout the summer, the Central Atlanta and South Atlanta communities joined with other communities and the many guests that come to work with Church on the Street to build a 12’ x 20’ sculpture!
Here’s how it worked: we collected abandoned junk and broken materials from the streets of Atlanta every week for the duration of the project. Utilizing the items we found, we added color, life, and personality back into the broken objects once deemed as useless by first affixing them on 4’ x 4’ structures. Then, by carefully piecing together a mosaic of "broken and worthless stuff", we created a massive and powerful formation of these objects as a whole sculpture/image, visually encapsulating our beliefs in new life through reconciliation.
The final piece was unveiled August 29th prominently on The Atlanta Beltline, seen by an average of 1000+ people each day.
