Welcome to the Legacy...

Homage To The King - Sculpture of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., welcomes people to the King National Historic Site at the southwest corner of Boulevard and Freedom Parkway. Commissioned by the Cultural Legacy Initiative, which brought major permanent public works of art to Atlanta from Barcelona--the 1992 Summer Olympic City--as an Olympic cultural exchange. Links the Georgia Institute of Technology to Freedom Parkway.Public art in Atlanta is an enduring legacy of the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games through the work of the former Corporation for Olympic Development in Atlanta (CODA). Integrated into high-profile public spaces throughout the former Olympic Ring, a series of intriguing permanent installations enlivens the landscape and atmosphere of Downtown. For resident and visitor alike, these works offer an unparalleled approach for seeing and understanding the city. Forever linked to a pivotal moment in time, this array of public art also represents larger expressions both of history and of future aspirations. Many of the Works have clear historic themes, from Atlanta’s railroad origins, to its post-Civil War rebirth, to civil rights struggles of recent decades. Others focus on ideas and themes of the human condition. Collectively, they constitute a cultural asset to be prized and preserved.
