Episode Six: Happy Birthday Epcot

Baseline-Tap-House_Full_31273.jpg

Hollywood Studios Baseline Taphouse-  
You may have heard about the Baseline Taphouse opening in the all new Grand Avenue are (right next to the very cool Sci-Fi Dine in) and it appears the menu has been released. 

Disney says the mood of this area “Among the bustling office and warehouse exteriors is a charming little brick building fizzing with character. The interior aesthetics pay homage to the Figueroa Printing Company—a mom-and-pop print house that once enjoyed a flourishing partnership with Disney Studios.”

Aerial view of Star Wars Galaxy Edge-
As you know I am kind of a nut when it comes to construction of Disney rides.  WDWMagic.com has posted a great photo of current status of this soon to be amazing place.

Episode Five: Updates and Parties

Originally there was a terrific rumor that Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway could open as early as next year.  It seemed like a possibility since the demolition of the The Great Movie Ride started just a few days after closing its doors.  As much as I wish this would happen, (rumors are saying summer of 2018) it could 2019 for an official opening.  Either way we will keep you posted.  

Ratatouille 4D Attraction-
Ratatouille fans can now rejoice! Construction has already started (land clearing) which will expand the France Pavilion in World Showcase just past the Eiffel Tower.  It will be some time before we see any buildings appear, but how exciting that we will get the same 4D attraction that opened in Disneyland Paris in 2014.  

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party-

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is right around the corner (visitors to the Magic Kingdom in late August through early November will enjoy the many decorations in the park, yet only those who purchase tickets will be able to enjoy the special events.  The cost of the tickets range in price from $79-115 for adults, depending on the date you decided to attend. You may check available dates and pricing 

Star Wars: Galactic Night-

Star Wars fans rejoice as Galactic Nights will return in December 16, 2017 from 7:00 pm to midnight.  Tickets for ages 3-9 are $124.00 and ages 10+ $129.00.  If you are interested in attending, here is the link to purchase your tickets before you travel to the happiest place on earth.


Episode Four: The Concern Was Real!

We will stop promoting local art here in Atlanta.  After speaking with 130 artists, the same things keep coming up.  I wanted to verify this was just not a few people who were expressing their frustation.  Each artist I spoke with has given a similar account of their experiences.  Our podcast will continue, but with a different subject.


Episode Three:  What Is Your Brand?

We talk about our brand in the terms of how we sell our art but what about our personal brand, how I failed in the worst possible way, and something that  surprised me when I visited my favorite art supply store.


Episode Two:  Behind The Lens

There is so much planning that goes behind a photo shoot.  Just wait until you hear the amount of time and effort that goes into just one session.


Episode One: 

There appears art on private buildings does not sit well with the city of Atlanta. We will talk about this ongoing debate and we even mentioned several artists and where you may see their work.

Artist Sabek work can be viewed on the Oakland Park condos, across the street from Oakland Cemetery, overlooking Memorial Drive.

Lela Brunet's bright yellow work is located on Wylie Street just on the other side of the Krog Street Tunnel intersection.  Along this wall there is numurous works including “Lauren.” by Lonnie Garne
