What Artzy did with MARTA
ArtzyBella Co, in partnership with MARTA Artbound and City of Atlanta Department of Transportation (ATLDOT) curated its signature CreateWell community activation service, which always features a combination community involvement, social impact, and the creation of some art.
As the Curator and Project Manager, the ArtzyBella team was excited to get a chance to work with her beloved sponsors and partners who stopped what they were doing to lend a hand to this incredible project. Our Title sponsor was Walmart, who brought over 150 people from all of their stores across Georgia to lend a hand, is committed to providing ongoing support of our community work.
ArtzyBella’s mission to maximize the opportunity to promote more wellness drive experiences into community projects for businesses and government through its CreateWell service resonated with Lululemon who joined as our Grand Sponsor and is dedicated to long term partnership with us.
#BikeSafeLee is an initiative to create a safer way for vehicles, bikers, and pedestrians to travel along Lee Street in historic West End. The creation of the new bike lane, and covering the lane with art, was sparked years ago between representatives from both City of Atlanta Department of Transportation and MARTA.
We commissioned two local professional visual artists to develop a unique design that celebrated mental health, wellness, happiness, and the spirit of the historic West End community.
We asked them to create a design that would be simple enough for people who may not have much experience painting to easily participate in completing.
Art students will facilitate all volunteers as they apply paint to the the artwork that will have already been drawn out on the barricades.The Facilitators will offer guidance and tips as the volunteers paint. The artists will come towards the end of the day to clean and polish up what volunteers did.
When you and your team arrive you will be assigned one or several barricades based on the size of your team. Once you get to the barricades you will be painting, you’ll get to enjoy music, curated playlists by Atlantas favorite Dj’s, food, beverages, and free swag to take home.
Professionals: An opportunity for your organization to collaborate to paint for a good cause.
Educators: We invite faculty and staff to participate in this event as a team-building activity.
Art Students: Volunteer in groups or assist other volunteer groups using your creative experience.
Startup Founder: Help with logistics to learn customer acquisition through social impact initatives.
We need 150 people each day! So the more the merrier.
