BuHi Lights, a temporary art installation in Pinetree Plaza, will feature large-scale illuminated inflatables with printed work by four female artists of color that will open on Saturday, November 3. The month-long art installation is a follow-up to last year’s Living Walls Conference in Chamblee.
In 2016 Monica Campana, the cofounder and executive director of Atlanta street art festival Living Walls, and Marian Liou, the founder of We Love BuHi, a social media love letter to Buford Highway, met while applying for fellowships at downtown’s Center for Civic Innovation. Soon after, they decided to partner and bring Living Walls to Buford Highway.
When Marian Liou moved to Buford Highway, she started an Instagram account: We Love BuHi. She developed a fanbase of more than 4,700 followers, and the media took note. But her story didn't end with Insta-fame. She wanted to help Buford Highway grow and protect what makes it such an important part of Atlanta's cultural landscape.
