AIB Presents: Where Atlanta Meets the World
It is rare that anything stands for 100 years. But in the heart of downtown Atlanta, stands a jewel of amazing art and culture, The Rialto Center for the Arts at Ga. State University. Celebrating 100 years, and 20 years in the Ga. State University family, this program raises the curtain on the amazing history of this theater, its renovation and rebirth. The center stands as a great example of how the arts can help transform a community.
We talk with the Director of the Rialto about the Center's transformation and its impact on Atlanta, along with the extraordinary artists on the stage. The tone and events of the time are discussed by an Atlanta historian and we hear from an activist who marched against the Ku Klux Klan and for justice and equal rights on the very corner where the Rialto stands. This program also introduces the audience to the next generation of Jazz greats!
Join us for AIB presents 100 years... "Where Atlanta Meets the World."
Premieres April 10th at 7:00 p.m.
