Tupac Shakur Statue

Tupac center is closed and for lease. Statue is gone. Garden gated and overgrown.

This seems to be closed permanently, fence with locked gate around the whole complex.

Upon driving by, the entire site appeared to be closed and surrounded by a chain-link fence.

[Jeff Rusbridge, 09/09/2014]

The fence blocks off the parking lot, but the gate appears to be open during business hours. The statue stands in the back garden, so it can't be visited when the Center for the Arts isn't open. Definitely a place to call before visiting!

Tupac Shakur Memorial Gardens

Tupac Shakur Memorial Garden

In Atlanta for business and took a drive to check in on Tupac. I made it during open hours and immediately stopped at the visitors center to say hi. The gentlemen that greeted me was more than friendly and helpful. He even showed me the best access to the garden. I spent about 20 minutes looking around. I stopped back into the VC again on my way out -- inside are some of Tupac's records and memorabilia, in addition to things for purchase.

This is a school and a place of business, but very relaxing, low key and welcoming. I'm glad I made the journey.
