Tiny Doors ATL is opening its first public art studio, according to an announcement Thursday.
The art studio will be housed in Atlantic Station, at 1380 Atlantic Drive NW, Suite 14100, in a 1,541-square-foot space, and is the first of its kind for the organization.
“As the country faces uncertain times, we are thinking of innovative ways to prepare for guests’ return, and the opening of the first public Tiny Doors ATL art studio is a perfect way to welcome everyone back,” Kristie Ray, director of marketing for Hines, Atlantic Station’s owner, said in the announcement.
“Tiny Doors ATL’s presence on the Atlantic Station property speaks volumes to the community we have built. We’re launching our ongoing property-wide art initiative to provide unexpected sparks of joy around the neighborhood for residents, employees, and visitors, and I can’t think of a more perfect launch than welcoming Tiny Doors ATL as our artist-in-residence. We can’t wait to unveil Atlantic Station’s very own Tiny Door this fall.”
Tiny Doors ATL Principal Artist and Founding Director, Karen Anderson Singer, will focus on providing a free, informative and immersive experience for studio visitors of all ages.
The Tiny Doors ATL studio will offer a first-ever look into the creation of the installations with monthly open-studios, as well as an overview of the art project’s history.
Retired doors are on display and Tiny Doors ATL merchandise is available for purchase.
Singer is planning to bring “unique” programming to the studio, including an artist talk series and participation in Atlantic Station’s public events.
“Since the beginning of Tiny Doors ATL, the goal of each location has been to bring the community together in an authentic way,” Singer said.
“I wanted my studio location to do the same.”
Since launching the art project in 2014, Singer has created more than 21 public installations in Atlanta.
The announcement of Tiny Doors ATL joining the Atlantic Station community marks the launch of its ongoing initiative to bring “exciting, unexpected” art to the property, which will continue to roll out this summer.
Atlantic Station is completing its major property transformation focused on providing the community an all-encompassing experience with completion of its new greenspace, Atlantic Green, and continued openings of new retail, dining and entertainment offerings throughout 2020.
