This year the organizers will pay homage to the role women have played in keeping Atlanta’s—and America’s—historic fabric intact.
In 1962 a chartered plane crashed in Orly, France, killing 106 of Atlanta’s core art patrons. Afterward, it seemed the light went out of the art scene here. But three years later, a group of energetic, civic-minded women lit the spark again, establishing the Forward Arts Foundation to support the visual arts, the group’s mission then and now.
This week the Atlanta Press Club announced its 2012 Hall of Fame inductees, including beloved University of Georgia journalism professor Conrad Fink, who died in January at age 80. Atlanta Journal-Constitution owner Anne Cox Chambers, her late sister Barbara Cox Anthony and their father Governor James M. Cox will also be honored at the October 10 ceremony at the InterContinental hotel in Buckhead. Pulitzer Prize winners Atlanta Constitution publisher Ralph McGill and reporter George Goodwin will also be honored at this year's event.
