Save the date for the ARLIS/NA Southeast annual meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, on Thursday, November 12, and Friday, November 13, 2015.

Out-of-town attendees are welcome to arrive on Wednesday, November 11, and stay through Saturday at the historic Artmore Hotel in the heart of Midtown, Atlanta’s cultural arts district.

Atlanta is a vibrant cultural hub with prominent art museums such as the High Museum of Art, the Museum of Design Atlanta, and the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center. The city is also home to several renowned theaters, music venues, and performance spaces. Impressive revitalization projects are shaping the green and creative landscape in Atlanta, including the Atlanta BeltLine project. Once a railroad track, the BeltLine is under development as a recreational path and green space that encircles the city and hosts art projects and performances year round. Ponce City Market, situated along the BeltLine, is currently the largest revitalization project in the Southeast. This significant and beautiful building, originally owned by Sears, is now home to boutique eateries, shops, and offices.

Our tentative agenda includes outings to several of the above-mentioned attractions plus a tour of Emory’s newly renovated Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (MARBL) and a visit to SCAD ACA Library’s artist’s book collection.

Details regarding hotel and travel arrangements, programming, and registration will be announced later this summer. Calls for lightning talks and presentations will follow. Please contact Marty Miller, ARLIS/SE vice president, at martymiller@lsu.org, should you have suggestions or questions regarding the meeting. We look forward to seeing you in Atlanta!
