Culture notes: Public art coming to Underground; free talk to focus on photography collecting

VISUAL ART
Underground expressions

Look for a panoply of public art in and around Underground Atlanta in late summer and fall. The city of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs Public Art Program has announced “Elevate/Art Above Underground,” a series of temporary art events ranging from large-scale murals to conceptual art along the Upper Alabama Street corridor and surrounding downtown areas, Aug. 26-Oct. 30. Participating artists include Fahamu Pecou, Martha Whittington and Théâtre du Rêve. Information: www.elevateatlanta.blogspot.com. HOWARD POUSNER

VISUAL ART
Talk focuses on photography collecting

Trying to help a younger audience get the picture on collecting photography, Jackson Fine Art and WonderRoot arts center will present a free talk, 10 a.m.-noon July 30, featuring the gallery’s Anna Walker Skillman and High Museum of Art photography curator Brett Abbott. They will provide perspective on how to develop a collector’s eye, differentiating printing processes, understanding editioning and provenance, determining the collectability of a photograph and how to build a collection to suit one’s taste and passions. (To reserve: cristina@jacksonfineart.com or 404-233-3739.)

At 1 p.m. that day, Skillman, Abbott and other experts will offer a portfolio review for 36 photographers (cost is a WonderRoot annual membership, $60). To register: www.wonderroot.org. Questions: Chris Appleton, chris@wonderroot.org. Jackson Fine Art is at 3115 E. Shadowlawn Ave., Atlanta. HOWARD POUSNER
