54 Columns

Welcome to Atlanta's Stonehenge! Famed artist Sol LeWitt's often-overlooked installation 54 columns has been a conversation starter since 1999. The artist envisioned the work as a nod to the city’s skyline and urban surroundings, hence his use of an industrial material like concrete.

After years of itching to create a resource that focuses solely on the Intown neighborhoods of the Atlanta metro, I'm excited to share our new website.
