Coming up: Martin Parr, Global Africa Project, Poems on Demand, ladder lending

Calling all ladders!

Flux Projects would like to borrow yours for “Rise Up Atlanta,” artist Charlie Brouwer’s temporary sculpture (rendering at left), to be on view in Freedom Park from April 28 to May 31. Prominent tags on each ladder will identify its lender. The ladders will be returned to their owners or, if an owner prefers, donated to the Atlanta Community ToolBank. Pickup is April 15-17; times and locations can be found on the Flux Projects website.

The Museum of Design Atlanta, which recently opened its smashing new digs in Midtown, has begun throwing Thursday-night soirees called “Drink in Design.” The guest for this Thursday is Free Poems on Demand, a literary performance group whose members will write poems on the spot for anybody who asks for one. Also, in honor of the Italian motorcycles on display, the classic film “Roman Holiday” will be projected throughout the museum. 6-8 p.m. Thursday, April 14.

Magnum photographer Martin Parr, who is completing a commission for the High Museum of Art, will discuss his fascination with leisure, consumption and communication, and how these themes play out in his work, at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 14.

Lowery Simms and Leslie King Hammond, curators of the sprawling, much-talked-about Global Africa Project at the Museum of Arts & Design in New York, will speak at Spelman College Museum at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 20.
