We have big plans for our second decade of success.

About the Project


Burnaway is a non-profit magazine about contemporary art from Atlanta and the American South.


The South is the most politically polarized, historically fraught, ecologically threatened, and economically disadvantaged parts of the United States. The issues facing Southern artists, institutions, curators, and writers often represent our most dire social and cultural challenges. Despite this, art from the South receives little national coverage or inclusion in major museum survey exhibitions.

Burnaway was conceived by a new generation of Atlantans to bring greater visibility and awareness to the incredible artists and thinkers in our region. As we look to the next decade of Burnaway, we have some ambitious plans. We are asking for your support to:

  • Relaunch our annual print publication
  • Redesign our website
  • Create a digital version of our beloved Atlanta Art Guide

With your support, we can change the way the world sees the South.
