EXPLORE PROJECT 23SQUARE

An initiative by the Marietta Arts Council to elevate the arts throughout all 23 Square miles of the City of Marietta. Beginning in 2018 with the inaugural M2R TrailFest introducing a mural tour, sculpture garden, mile-long fence gallery, and numerous performances stretching along two miles of the downtown Marietta urban walking and biking trail, the Mountain to River Trail.


Mural Installations

Sculpture Tour

2019 M2R Fence Gallery

A ONE-MILE CURATED EXHIBIT OF AREA ARTISTS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS, INSTALLED TRACKSIDE ALONG MARIETTA’S MOUNTAIN TO RIVER TRAIL. THE EXHIBIT WAS DISPLAYED THROUGH JULY 11, 2019.

 

Free Art Scavenger Hunts

For the 2019 M2R TrailFest, Atlanta-based artist Catlanta designed and created 20 pieces of free art that he placed along the trail so that festival attendees could take home their own memento from the day! The scavenger hunt was fierce, with many pieces being found before the artist could post a hint to the location. Free art scavenger hunts will be an ongoing initiative where artists will create and hide free artwork in different areas of the city. Follow along on the Marietta Arts Council's social media and the hashtag #Art4AllMarietta to find out when the next scavenger hunt will happen!

 

Keys to the City

Premiering at the 2019 M2R TrailFest, "Keys to the City" is a city-wide initiative featuring pianos painted by local artists. The pianos appear throughout the city and are to be enjoyed by anyone who happens upon one. Become a part of the #mariettaartscene when you sit down at a piano and let yourself be creative! Remember to tag us so we can share your performance! Pianos donated by New Song Pianos.

 

Hope Breaks Through

A mixed media installation created by student artists at Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health. The collaged pieces represent various struggles, while superhero Captain Devereux represents our inner self overcoming obstacles.
