Thanks to all who attended our meeting at City Hall on November 13th, "A Gathering for Arts & Culture"

Entering an exciting time for arts and culture in Johns Creek, the Cultural Arts Alliance held its first in-person general meeting since the start of the pandemic. It was a well-attended meeting with a chance to connect arts & culture leaders, professional artists, nonprofit organizations, businesses, local officials, and arts & culture advocates.

The program included a history and update of the Cultural Arts Alliance and the Legacy Center project from Wayne Baughman, the latest on the Legacy Center campaign and next steps in funding from Steve Dorough of First Community Development, and information about the city's new initiatives to encourage and support arts and culture activities from Stacey Gross, the city's Volunteer Coordinator.

Attendees were enthusiastic about all that's happening and discussed ideas to further coordinate programming and collaboration between organizations and how to better bring awareness of arts & culture activities to residents.

We plan to resume quarterly meetings with another in February 2023.

MORE PUBLIC ART for JOHNS CREEK !


Rogers Bridge Artwork Selected

Large public art piece announced for the Johns Creek side of the Chattahoochee River utilizing the historic Rogers Bridge steel salvage.

Artist Ilan Averbuch's proposed sculpture "The Bridge" is utilizing salvaged steel from the historic Rogers Bridge and reclaimed granite blocks. This large public art piece will be situated on the Johns Creek side of the Chattahoochee River close to the location of the old bridge and the earlier Rogers Ferry.

On each side, pieces of the old steel abstractly represent people supporting the granite arch, a symbolic connection to each other and the river throughout this area's history.

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 below) 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.

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.
