Predictions abound for where our country and planet are headed. From fiery prophecies to statistical likelihoods, a myriad of opinions proliferate on the direction we are taking, yet the conclusions are invariably grim. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

The Imagine Atlanta Film Series presents documentaries that inform, entertain, and educate about our world. Beginning Tuesday June 19, the series will kickoff with Surviving Progress, a film that explores how our own intelligence may be contrary to our survival as a species. Tracing development over the course of human history, Surviving Progress discusses some of the limitations of human intelligence, as well as some of the potential solutions to increased scarcity on this planet, through interviews with Stephen Hawking, Jane Goodall, Margaret Atwood, and other notable thinkers, writers, and persons of influence.

The series will continue every two to four weeks, with topics ranging from public housing to dumpster diving.  Currently the other scheduled films are Switch, a documentary about all things related to energy, and In Organic We Trust, an exploration of what ‘organic’ really means.

The films will be screened at the Midtown Arts Cinema, but there are tickets for only 120 people, so get them in advance.

Hope to see you there.

Midtown Patch spends a day with Gene in…well…Midtown.  Come along for the ride and see what happens.

Gene gears up for a coffee at the Octane PocketBar at Bank of America Plaza.

GO TO THE HIGH MUSEUM…NEW OPENING THIS SATURDAY!

GK|CRE enjoyed a preview tour of the Henri Cartier-Bresson exhibit…and…it’s spectacular. The work itself is wonderful, and the crisp, productive, important and explorative adventures of the photographer are equally impressive.

One of the things that interested us the most is that Henri Cartier-Bresson took stunning pictures of real life, but rarely looked back.  In many cases, this artist/photo journalist never even saw some of the shots he took.  Thankfully, The High Museum has made it possible for us to take a look back into history and see them now.

So, take part in this look-back by grabbing the kids and heading over this weekend, or sneak out of the office one day in the middle of the week to check out this exhibit…you’ll be happy you did!

Oh, and if you want to listen to a show about “How To See Art”, just click on over to Sidewalk Radio.

Arden’s Garden opens its NEW LOCATION at 90 Peachtree Place THIS WEEK.

Being that we absolutely adore Leslie Zinn and the whole Arden’s crew, this Grand Opening is a nice, serendipitous way to celebrate Valentine’s Day (week).  And, not only do we love the new spot (it’s stunning) but we are truly excited that Midtown just got a whole lot more healthy (and tasty) with fresh juices, smoothies (try the Cha-Cha Cherry) and smart food…and that’s a good thing.

While this location is a new one for Arden’s, the building is old (well, we call that “historic”…just sounds better). 90 Peachtree Place is part of the Margaret Mitchell House campus in a building known as Historic Commercial Row. This is some of Atlanta’s first retail (early 1900’s), and the GK|CRE family is thrilled to have helped revitalize this building and bring a lil health to the ‘hood.

Enjoy in good health, y’all!
