The Sugar Hill Arts Commission is calling artists to submit artwork for display on construction fences surrounding the future site of the Sugar Hill EpiCenter.

In 2018, Sugar Hill will open the doors to a brand new $30 million work/play EpiCenter featuring retail spaces, restaurants, a roof top bar, theater and more. Located in downtown Sugar Hill, the new EpiCenter overlooks “The Bowl”, Gwinnett’s “Best Outdoor Concert Venue” with an award-winning 2016 lineup that included Blues Traveler, Third Eye Blind and Kool in the Gang.

During the 18+-month construction period of the EpiCenter (pictured above), a long, empty, fence will surround the building site. This fence is the future canvas for This is My Sugar Hill, an innovative, unique, temporary art installation in downtown Sugar Hill.

This is My Sugar Hill will tell the story of art in our community by showcasing a diverse collection of pieces that celebrates our community, our heritage and our future.

Artists are encouraged to share either new or existing works. The Sugar Hill Arts Commission will produce panels from selected artwork and install the artwork at no expense to the artist. Click here for the Art Application.

We would love to have you join us for this exciting, grassroots public art campaign.
