Art seen

It's SUBTLE!
So subtle, in fact, that I've walked past this site at least a half dozen times and never noticed it before!

An artist worked with nearly two dozen teens to fabricate miniature "ruins" within the recessed areas under numerous small rock overhangs and ledges of railroad cut for visitors to encounter new worlds as envisioned by the teens. Before the clays eventually deteriorate in the elements, visitors are able to examine the curious nooks and crannies of the rock wall, scouting for traces of civilizations from long ago to the post-apocalyptic.

Seen along the Atlanta Beltline.

Clever idea. May have to steal it.

I like it. Everyone who comes along should add a piece.

Whoa. Mesa Verde! I am curious. How tall are those structures. The perspective is really tough! Could be 12 inches . . could be 12 feet!

I agree with the clever idea comment. I think it would be fun to do little unexpected miniature art "things" like this all around.

I agree with Cathy--it does remind me of Mesa Verde.

They're pretty small... I'd guess less than 6 inches tall?
