Ari Marcopoulos

Artist Kara Walker spent her teenage years in Atlanta after her father, artist and professor Larry Walker, accepted a position at Georgia State University. Her family lived in Stone Mountain, home of the famous and controversial Confederate memorial carving. That carving, the world's largest bas-relief sculpture, inspired Walker’s own monumental piece, "The Jubilant Martyrs of Obsolescence and Ruin." It was recently acquired by the High Museum of Art and will on view starting next year.

The corner of 10th Street and Peachtree Street has a new sculpture. It's called “Autoeater” and looks just like it sounds: a car being eaten by a slab of marble. Weighing 16 tons and mined and built it Italy, it was created by artist duo Julia Venske and Gregor Spänle.
