ATLANTA - Stevie Wonder exhibit "Our Celebration of Stevie Wonder" at the Thompson Atlanta:
From 1963’s "Fingertips — Part 2" to 1973’s "You Are the Sunshine of My Life" to 1984’s "I Just Called to Say I Love You," the music of Stevie Wonder has provided the soundtrack to our lives. And now, the iconic artist is being celebrated in a unique exhibition here in Atlanta.
This morning on Good Day Atlanta, we spent a few hours at the Thompson Atlanta — Buckhead, getting a look at "Our Celebration of Stevie Wonder" from Art Melanated. The exhibit pays tribute to the "Songs in the Key of Life" creator through the work of various artists, including Jennia Fredrique Aponte, who co-founded Art Melanated with her husband Sol. "Our Celebration of Stevie Wonder" premiered at the Andaz hotel in West Hollywood and wrapped its engagement there at the end of last year; the Apontes say it was so well received that they decided to tour it, with Atlanta as the first stop.
Art Melanated was founded in 2022 as a platform for artists of color; the founders describe it as a community in which various forms of art can be created, discussed, and celebrated. Other artists represented in the Stevie Wonder exhibit include Bart Cooper, Brandon Deener, Kipkemoi, Shaina McCoy, Miles Regis, Bruce W. Talamon, Kevin A. Williams, Murjoni Merriweather, and Chukes.
"Our Celebration of Stevie Wonder" is scheduled to be at the Thompson Atlanta — Buckhead (415 East Paces Ferry Road) for three months — to see some of the pieces and learn more about Art Melanated, click here.
