This is a seriously great film about Atlanta’s Living Walls Project and public art more generally. It depicts a story that centers on the fundamental questions of the relationship between artists and their artwork and their audience - especially when an audience is involuntary (not self-selecting).

Art happens inside you, it’s not in the object. It’s about your potential.
