Cousins Properties has commissioned the work of six artists, four from Atlanta, to display their work in the Promenade building in Midtown. One of the commissioned pieces is a sculpture called “Stealth,” which will face 15th Street and the Woodruff Arts Center. The piece is by Georgia Tech grad Tristan Al-Haddad.
Cousins has created an “artist in residence” program, in which an artist takes a studio space in Promenade, and at the end of his/her time there, will create a work for the building. The first artist to take up the residency is Atlantan Maxey Andress.
According to a media release, Cousins founder Tom Cousins and his wife, Ann, wanted to connect what’s inside the building to the surrounding Midtown Arts District. Cousins bought Promenade at the end of 2011 and the arts are part of the major improvements being done. Cousins also recently unveiled a sculpture that Tristan Al-Haddad will create, that will wrap around its recently purchased building in Dallas, 2100 Ross.
