The ATL Collective was established to foster the Atlanta music scene, encourage collaborations and cross-pollination and to create happenings that will inspire and entertain. Each month the collective picks one album to cover in its entirety. Next month, they’ll be covering Paul Simon’s Graceland. For the poster I chose to represent Simon’s travel to South Africa where he collaborated with several musicians there to achieve the sound of the record. The map, though, is of Atlanta – symbolizing the collective of Atlanta musicians traveling to one spot in order to give their own face to the music of Paul Simon.
