Park a Park (above) was the first event of Arts Unleashed 2009. This interactive sculpture, hosted by the Art X Hypermedia class of the University of Georgia, took place on the top floor of the College Avenue Parking Deck. The site had a lookout to view downtown Athens, games, a live landscape portrait and a rest area.
