We are cleaning-out the pool at Maddox Park (1142 Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway NW Atlanta, GA 30318) this week and we would love to have your support. It’s easy to get to, right across from the Bankhead MARTA station. We will be at the park Thursday, Friday, and Saturday between 12pm and 4pm, August 30—September 1. If you are coming, please contact our Operations Manager, Paul Boshears (firstname.lastname@example.org) to make sure there is no rain delay.
Yesterday we found all sorts of neat stuff in the pool, including 14 dice!
We cannot thank enough our wonderful volunteers Susan Sorenson and Roy Sockwell (these are Roy’s photos, in fact), and to the dancers that were catching frogs and shoveling top soil. Y’all are the absolute best! This clean-up project literally would not be possible were it not for the support of the City of Atlanta’s Department of Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs; and also the tools that Park Pride is lending to us.
We will be performing search for the exceptional in Maddox Park on September 21 and 22 (Friday and Saturday) at 8pm. Once again we are collaborating with celebrated filmmaker Micah Stansell, but this performance will be very different from our previous work in the Historic Fourth Ward Skatepark. This work is going to be very intimate, quiet, and personal.
