Escif, Emergency Only

Escif is an internationally acclaimed street artist from Valencia, Spain known for his large-scale public murals. His work often draws connections between the image, the place around it and the actual surface where the mural is painted. In partnership with the 2011 Living Walls Conference, Escif was invited to Atlanta to produce his striking, six-story-tall mural especially for Elevate. The oversized red fire extinguisher with the caption “Emergency Only” brings color, unexpected scale and humor to the downtown environment.

Alice Lovelace & Lisa Tuttle, Harriet Rising

ALICE LOVELACE AND LISA TUTTLE of Atlanta created Harriet Rising, a tribute to the heroic courage of former slave Harriet Tubman who led 70 slaves to freedom through the Underground Railroad. The piece also honors eight courageous women working in Atlanta today on behalf of minorities and women including Grandmothers for Peace, SisterSong, Women of Color, Reproductive Health Collective and the Refugee Women’s Network. Eight towering columns featured a different story about Tubman and a portrait and statement from each local leader. All of the women are dressed in white in response to a recurring dream Tubman had in the years before her escape to freedom. Drawing parallels between Underground Atlanta’s historical significance in the Civil War and Atlanta’s role in the civil rights movement, the site was also used for poetry readings and performances led by poet Alice Lovelace.
