Fernbank Museum is thrilled to announce the installation of our Tiny Door, which will open September 9 at 8 p.m., during our adults-only event, Fernbank After Dark: Senses. While the sculpture is small in stature, the inclusion of a Tiny Door at Fernbank will better connect us with the local art movement in Atlanta and represent our museum as a staple amongst other institutions in the community.
Where is Fernbank Museum’s Tiny Door?
Fernbank’s Tiny Door is located on the rock retaining wall along the nature path outdoors in WildWoods, across the from Kendeda Pavillion.
What is a Tiny Door?
Tiny Doors ATL is an Atlanta-based art project created by artist, Karen Anderson Singer. The small entryway-styled installations are designed to reflect the spirit and architecture of the community they represent.
The Concept Behind Fernbank’s Tiny Door
Fernbank Museum’s Tiny Door is a 7-inch, one-of-a-kind installation in partnership with Tiny Doors ATL. Framed with Giganotosaurus claws, a depiction relating to the famous Giants of the Mesozoic dinosaur skeletons that fill Fernbank’s Great Hall, this outdoor display is a unique art piece that also allows us to better connect with Atlanta’s art community.
