Saturday morning the Decatur Arts Alliance crew and others worked on installing over 30 Doors of Decatur around the bandstand. We're very excited with this year's response. We received so many painted doors that there is absolutely no more space for any doors on the Community Bandstand.
The Doors of Decatur Community Art Project began in 2001, and has become a Decatur Arts Festival tradition. Unadorned doors are collected from neighborhoods and given to local artists, citizens and schools to transform into pieces of art. The project won a Silver Kaleidoscope Award for Best Community Program from the Southeastern Festival and Events conference.
The doors will be auctioned off on Saturday, May 26 at 5 pm during the Arts Festival. Take a stroll around the bandstand this week to decide which one you want to bid on. Below is a couple of detailed shots from a few of the doors.
