Carter Center Re-design
Lately, if you’ve wanted to visit the Jimmy Carter Museum you would find that it’s closed for a 10 Million dollar re-design. The museum plans to re-open on October 1st, just in time for former President Carter’s 85th birthday. Earlier I stopped by to take a tour with Jay Hakes, the Director of the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library about what will be included in the new re-design.

The Memory Palace - Messrs. Craft
Summer is a time of freedom and long journeys, and in that spirit, producer Nate DiMeo shares with us a story from his radio series, The Memory Palace, about one slave’s curious — and courageous — road to freedom.
Think for a moment of beauty of the outdoors. That could be nature and for some its also art. One local Atlanta artist has a brand of street art that he purposefully displays outside for all to see and for mother nature to eventually fade.
Artist Matt Haffner, recently had a large INDOOR work — Dreams of a Sleeping Giant - on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia.

Images of The Apocalypse
The poet Robert Frost wrote “some say the world will end in fire / some say in ice.” Frost obviously hadn’t consulted any of the artists taking part in Images of the Apocalypse — an exhibit going on now at Georgia State University. Myke Johns paid them a visit.
Images of the Apocalypse runs through August 12th at Georgia State’s Welch School Gallery.
