Check out this week's edition of UPFRONT Inside the Entertainment Industry. It features ELEVATE ATL ARTS curator Charmaine Minniefield and High Museum of Art curator Katie Jentleson. 

My first segment features "artivist" and curator of the 2021 Elevate Atlanta Public Arts Festival—-Charmaine Minniefield. She stops by to chat about this year's activities that are posed to “Reopen, Reconnect and Reignite” Atlanta residents. 

Closing out the show is High Museum of Art curator Katie Jentleson. She’s here to chat about their newest exhibition Really Free: The Radical Art of Nellie Mae Rowe.  The exhibition is the first in 20 years to focus on the art and life of Georgia-born artist and activist Nellie Mae Rowe.
