“This is our third year hosting the gallery,” said Jennifer Hogan, Director, Community. “It takes hard work and collaboration to install and remove the panels, but it is worth it because this is how we create a vibrant community people want to visit.”

Produced by the Marietta Arts Council, the yearly gallery debuts at M2R Trailfest and stays in Marietta for a 60-day exhibition before traveling to different locations throughout Cobb County. Newly printed weather-safe panels are installed at each location on a predetermined schedule.

After visiting Aviation Park, the gallery continues to Concord Road Linear Park and Arboretum in Smyrna, the last stop on the tour.

The Marietta Arts Council is currently accepting applications for the 2024-2025 exhibit until midnight March 24, 2024.
