MORE PUBLIC ART for JOHNS CREEK !

Rogers Bridge salvage steel art project

Honoring the importance of the historic Rogers Bridge by re-purposing its steel for public art.

Once it was clear the historic bridge would be replaced with a new structure, the Johns Creek Historical Society, JCCVB, and others were active advocates of saving the bridge steel (a small portion pictured above) to create public art.

$200,000 funding was made available for one large and a couple smaller artworks when the Fulton County Commissioners budgeted $150,000, thanks to Commissioner Liz Hausmann, and the Johns Creek City Council approved the JCCVB recommendation to allocate $50,000 of hotel/motel tax to the project.

Artist selection. The Fulton County department of Arts&Culture, with deep experience in public art, is managing the artist selection and commission process. After a call for artists was announced and applications considered, the top candidates made a July 11th site visit to see the steel available, potential artwork locations, and to hear a presentation of the history of the bridge and its surroundings. Those artists made their proposals in August, with the final selection following.

read more about the project to replace the historic Rogers Bridge with a replica pedestrian bridge across the Chattahoochee at Cauley Creek Park.

Keep up with the latest news of the Legacy Center Project

www.jclegacyarts.org

Facebook and Instagram

The Legacy Center of Johns Creek will be a multi-use, multi-discipline arts center designed to be used not only as a comprehensive cultural arts venue, but a place for community, social, and business events.  It is envisioned to be a strong economic driver for both the arts and the greater community of Johns Creek.  Many community and government leaders consider the Legacy Center to be a top priority and potential “anchor” in the development of a city center for Johns Creek.

As a hub of activity, the Legacy Center will support community gatherings, social and business events, plus a wide range of local and touring concerts and shows. But, at its heart, it will be a place for creating, exhibiting, rehearsing, performing and teaching the arts and culture by and for the citizens of Johns Creek.
