“Art on Track” in Saporta Report

Lyle V. Harris, Chief Spokesperson for MARTA, wrote about the ACP "Art on Track" Public Art project for Saporta Report.

"In its maiden voyage on MARTA, Art on Track featured original images by Atlanta-based photographers Kelly Kristin Jones and Laura Noel and was conceived and curated by Jennifer Schwartz, the Creator and Executive Director of Crusade for Art. Jones, Noel and Schwartz worked for months with MARTA staff from numerous departments to temporarily remove the advertising panels on a Red Line train and turn the rail vehicles into what ACP described as a unique, sensory art experience for riders... that will take them to new cultural horizons.

And so it did."

    Thanks for committing to the Art on Track installation, MARTA. As a frequent MARTA commuter (rail and bus) and a supporter of arts (particularly photography), I was happy that ACP partnered with MARTA on this inaugural event. While the train was off-schedule, the wait was worth it and I hope to see a similar installation next year.
