The 2015 Phoenix Flies Celebration is taking place through March 22 with events and tours of Atlanta’s historic buildings and places.
Organized by the Atlanta Preservation Center, this year’s Phoenix Flies has more than 84 different partners – the largest number ever, according to event coordinator Ellen Cody.
“As a result, we are going to be able to offer much more variety in the kinds of events that will be taking place and will be covering more topics than ever before,” Cody said.
Some favorite returning partners include the Westview Cemetery, Atlanta Women’s Club, Fox Theatre, Oakland Cemetery, Piedmont Driving Club, Savannah College of Art & Design and the Wrecking Bar.
New partners joining for the first time or coming back after a hiatus include All Saints’ Episcopal Church, APEX Museum, The Castle, History Atlanta, The Trolley Barn, WERD at the Madame CJ Walker Museum, and many others.
The Atlanta Preservation Center will host a number of discussions led by partners, as well as hosting authors John Bayne (Atlanta’s Westview Cemetery) and Jane Harmon, whose newest book, Warrior’s Song, a fictional account of a Georgia girl growing up around the time of Sherman’s March during the Civil War.
