The My Athens Art Show will showcase the art of up-and-coming and established artists who celebrate the beauty and culture of Athens, Georgia, through photos on Instagram. Throughout February, photographers - of any experience - were asked to post on the social network their photos of people, places and experiences that capture the essence of The Classic City and tag them with the hashtag #my_athens.


The photos will be curated and showcased during an April 6th - 20th gallery exhibit, which will benefit Habitat for Humanity. The exhibit will unite the people of Athens, Georgia, to celebrate the many beautiful aspects of the city using social media to drive an in-person experience. Throughout the two weeks, local organizations and residents will host special events in the space and sponsor concerts by up-and-coming bands, lectures, and conversations themed around art and creativity, social good and the community.



Prints and local items will be on sale at the gallery with proceeds going to Habitat for Humanity. Additional prints will be used to decorate local Habitat homes. Thursday, April 18 is designated as "My Athens Gives Back." The night will be dedicated to connecting and promoting causes that are reaching the needs of the city and the disadvantaged. Meaningful ideas and conversation will surround mobilizing volunteers to make a difference collectively.
