Arts & Culture
The Arts & Culture Committee of East Atlanta Village sees it’s mission as two-fold:
- First, we would like to encourage the use of art as a way to help address some of the community’s ongoing visual concerns.
- Second, we seek to promote artistic and cultural opportunities as a way to foster social connection and growth within our community.
In addition, the Arts & Culture Committee will also serve as EACA’s liasion to existing cultural events, such as B*ATL, The Strut, EAV-O-Ween and East Atlanta Santa Fest as well as likely partner with local nonprofit organizations.
Join the Friends of East Atlanta Library and your Southeast Atlanta neighbors for afternoons with local authors! Our next event will be held on Saturday, February 9, from 3:30-5PM in the Fellowship Hall of Ormewood Church. Coffee and light snacks will be served.
For the second year, East Atlanta has a menorah in addition to our Christmas tree. The menorah is located at the planter at the intersection of Flat Shoals and Glenwood, near the tree. If you’d like to volunteer in the nightly lighting please see the signup form at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A0F4DA5A728A13-menorah

"The photography presented at our library was mostly shot on the battlefields at Gettysburg at night and then combined through projections with other historical images found in research by the artist. The result is striking." - Friends of East Atlanta Library
