Some of the first residents of today’s Goat Farm were artists who were specially invited by the property owners to live and work onsite. Today, various artists like Alessandra Hoshor and Addison Adams have studios, and you can frequently find visiting artists on the farm grounds creating works at events like the weekly “Sketchbooks & Chill” meetup, where you can hammer out any sort of design that comes to mind while hanging with people of various skill-levels (Dubelyoo is a regular, but let that inspire rather than intimidate you).
Home of The High, ATL’s world-class art museum, Woody is usually considered a place where collections from legendary international names such as Dalí, Basquiat, Gordon Parks, and even people who are still living are exhibited. Sometimes though, a people’s champ such as Fahamu Pecou, the Emory scholar, Killer Mike album cover designer, and artist set to repaint four MARTA stations in the near future is chosen. Visit the new Octane Arts Center this summer if you’re fiending for a decidedly more indie fix of art with a fancy side cup of French press.
