The Producers at Fox Theatre

The Producers is coming back to the stage after an 8 year absence. This big, comedic Broadway Musical is a record winner of 12 Tony Awards. This play, written by Mel Brooks, has set the bar for in-your-face-humor and has proclaimed itself as an “equal opportunity offender.” Co-written by Thomas Meehan, the writer of Annie, this is sure to be the theater event of the year.

Returning to Atlanta’s Fox Theatre Friday 25th through the 31st, join Max Bailystock and Leo Bloom in their adventure to create the most infamous Broadway dud and make millions of dollars in the process. The only thing that could go wrong for these two is if the play turns out to be a phenomenal sensation. Through this chaotic adventure, these two unlikely acquaintances become friends while encountering hilarious hijinks on the way to success.

You can turn this fabulous night at the theater into a remarkable weekend getaway by staying at the Artmore Midtown Atlanta Hotel and taking in all this city has to offer. Only 5 minutes from the Fox Theatre, you would be right in the middle of the cultural hub of the city. Pay a visit to the High Museum which is merely a short walk from the hotel. Afterward, enjoy fine dining and shopping at Atlantic Station, also just a few blocks from the hotel. And at night, wind down around a fire pit with a drink from our studio lounge. This will surely be a getaway to remember.

2012 deFINE ART Honoree Fred Wilson

“Life’s Link and Other Projects: A Talk by Fred Wilson, 2012 deFINE Art Honoree,” SCAD Atlanta.

The world’s renowned conceptual artist Fred Wilson is coming to SCAD, Atlanta on February 22, 2012. DeFINE ART 2012 will honor Fred Wilson for his work and influence on contemporary art. Wilson will discuss his overall practice and approach to both his museum installations as well as individual artworks.

Wilson’s installations and large-scale singular works are subjected around social justice of African Americans.   His approach is to examine, question, and deconstruct the traditional display of art and artifacts in museums.  With the use of new wall labels, sounds, lighting, and non-traditional pairings of objects, he leads viewers to recognize that changes in context create changes in meaning.

He will also touch on the process of producing his original exhibition with works from the Walter O. Evans Collection of African American Art at the SCAD Museum of Art.

 This event is free and open to the public! The Artmore Hotel is pleased to offer special rates to all traveling guests attending this event. For more information and availability, contact reservations (404) 201.7555 today!
