ART PAPERS 40.01 - Jan/Feb 2016

Regular price $10.00 Sale

Atlanta is a place built around its transportation infrastructure, not the other way around. ART PAPERS was founded in Atlanta in 1976, during a decade of particularly energetic regional and national growth both for the art and art publishing communities. It is with this history and these new discussions in mind that ART PAPERS begins our 40th anniversary year, and launches a special edition of our magazine "Terminus," named for and devoted to the force of our home city's transportation legacy, and its impact on art, design, and the urban plan.
