Spruill Center for the Arts Announces Doves of Hope Installation planned for January 30


In partnership with Pebble Tossers, Spruill Center for the Arts is calling on the community to help create a new art installation in the North DeKalb Cultural Arts Center atrium. The planned installation will feature 2,021 origami doves to symbolize our collective hopes and dreams for the New Year. The project is similar to the “Les Colombes” installations created at the Salisbury Cathedral in the United Kingdom and the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.

The art installation is a community-based project that asks participants to write their hopes and dreams for 2021 on paper, fold each sheet into an origami dove (using the simple directions provided below) and deliver them to Spruill Center for the Arts before January 30th. Everyone in the community is encouraged to participate and can drop off their completed doves in collection boxes located in the Spruill atrium (5339 Chamblee Dunwoody Road) or create one on-site at Spruill. Volunteers from Pebble Tossers will also work with their community partners including A.G. Rhodes and InCommunity, among others, to help create the doves. Participants in the City of Dunwoody MLK Day of Service on Monday, January 18, will also have an opportunity to create their own doves. Completed doves will be collected on site.

Community groups interested in participating in Doves of Hope should contact Spruill CEO, Alan Mothner, at amothner@spruillarts.org
