If you've passed through a MARTA station in Atlanta in the past few weeks, you may have spotted one of the seven backlit DuPont Corian sculptures that are part of the temporary "Light up Atlanta" exhibition. Commissioned by local building products distributor C.H. Briggs, the exhibit showcases the work of Atlanta-based designers. While the exhibit is currently scheduled to stay up until July 7th, a representative from DuPont says it may get an extension due to its popularity. I am partial to the pieces that also serve as benches — I like it when art is also functional. Check them out if you find yourself commuting in Atlanta this summer.
