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, JC CVB, 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 will make their proposals in mid-August, with the final selection following.

Keep up with the latest news of the Legacy Center Project

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.
