(This year’s Spotlight on Local Talent series highlights some of the artists being exhibited on our Public Art Project “The Georgia FENCE” on the Atlanta BeltLine’s Westside trail. Every Tuesday at noon in October, check our Instagram live for a brief interview that will illuminate the stories behind these compelling photo projects and connect you with these exceptional local artists.)
Inspired by the experience of being one of the only people of color at nearly every rock show. After moving to Atlanta, I was thrilled to discover a local collective called Punk Black, which travels the country to put on shows that tap diverse rock and punk acts.
