Tiny ALEX (Atlanta’s Lead EXplorer) is ready for #ATLSciFest 2018 and has started to explore the city by visiting one of Atlanta’s most prized public art exhibits – Tiny Doors ATL. Founded in 2014, Karen Anderson and Sarah Meng created this Atlanta-based art project consisting of evolving interactive installation pieces that bring wonder to tiny spaces. Principal Artist and Director Karen Anderson maintains the doors throughout the year and now focuses much of her time on creating tiny art for small businesses and companies. We can thank Karen for our wonderful Tiny ALEX!
ALEX and the Atlanta Science Festival love collaborating with local organizations that offer Atlantans accessible STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) experiences. We’re very thankful to Tiny Doors ATL for doing just that!
If you’re looking for even more Atlanta STEAM experiences, this year’s Atlanta Science Festival March 9 through the 24 has you covered. The Festival launches on Friday, March 9 with Rise Up, Robots! at the Ferst Center of The Arts and ends with our free Exploration Expo at Piedmont Park on March 24. Plus over 100 events that take place in-between. Plan your festival experience today! And who knows, you just might meet a life-size ALEX along the way.
Tiny Doors ATL installs 6-inch tall doors in strategic places throughout the city. You could walk past these tiny installations for months and never see them. Next time you’re taking a stroll, be sure to keep an eye out for Tiny Doors ATL!
ALEX (Atlanta’s Lead EXplorer) takes form as both a tiny and live-size mascot for The Atlanta Science Festival. You can get your picture taken with her this year at our range of events spanning between March 9-24.
This colorful door resides near the Old Fourth Ward Skatepark on The Atlanta Beltline and sees a ton of foot, bike, and running traffic each day.
Also located along The Atlanta Beltline, this French style door resides near the Eiffel Tower and awesome vintage store Paris on Ponce.
This tiny door can be found 15 feet from the famous King of Pops walk-up window in Inman Park. It even has its very own tiny sandwich board, sidewalk, and tiny mural painted by artist Chris Veal (the original painter of the larger mural on the same wall).
