As an avid supporter of the arts and education, AIA Atlanta’s URBANfronts program produces partnerships with arts groups, schools and the community, fostering creative and innovative talent.

Presented each fall, URBANfronts Creative Expressions is a one-night gallery featuring works of art and multicultural entertainment, providing a public forum utilizing the work of local artists, designers and inventors.

URBANfronts Storefront Galleries coincides with Creative Expressions, helping beautify and enhance the built environment through the temporary adaption of empty retail storefronts in the city with thought provoking works of art.
