Lots to see on three corners of this "park," interestingly aged works of folk art. There was a homeless man sleeping behind where I stood.

There are no signs to say that this is the Folk Art Park, but it's an interesting art area in a random spot. Someone who works at a nearby business said that groups of people often go there to find something during scavenger hunts.

Folk Art Park

Folk art park created during the 1996 Olympics as a kind of antithesis to the highly refined, industrial nature of the Olympics. This public art project was a winner of a world wide contest for beautifying blank areas on top of overpass areas in Atlanta for citizens who live around the overpass areas.

A collaboration between many artists -- it's a sort of pastiche of folk art you'd see if you bothered driving around to other parts of Georgia. You'll see a homage to St. EOM's Pasaquan, Finster's Paradise Gardens, etc. There's also a "Gourd Tree" constructed of 60 plastic gourds.
