Door #1 is Turning TWO!

TinyDoorsATLbirthdaypartyCome and celebrate with Tiny Doors ATL and make new tiny friends!

In July of 2014, we began Tiny Doors ATL with the mission to bring big wonder to tiny spaces. We were inspired by the real-time conversation between artists at the Krog Street Tunnel, and added our tiny piece of wood and cement hoping to join in. Two years and 9 doors later, the mission has evolved to include creating free and accessible art, and highlighting neighborhoods and qualities which make Atlanta unique. We could never have imagined the kinds of conversations we would have, and great friends we would make along the way. Our Tiny Friends make this project special, and we couldn’t celebrate without you. Please join us!

Tiny Friends! Our t-shirts are now available ONLINE! Our first round of shirts sold out in just a few hours in January. (Thank you!!!) We were flattered and frankly puzzled. How do we keep tiny shirts available for our friends without becoming a t-shirt shop? …Oh yeah! TinyShirtWe find a t-shirt shop!
So we’ve paired with local ATL shop Fallen Arrows to have our rainbow design available online in multiple sizes all the time! For the first time we also have onesies available! (stay tuned for doggy shirts and more!)
They’re high quality cotton shirts, printed here in GA. A portion of the sales will go directly to support the care and maintenance of the doors.Thank you!

Door #8 is open!

Door #8 opened on December 19th at Milltown Arms Tavern in Cabbagetown. All of our doors are part of their community and this door is unique because it represents just how invested in this public art project you are, Atlanta. This door is one result of our successful Brick Campaign, a fundraiser where we engraved your names and messages on tiny bricks for all to see. We are honored, and grateful, and can’t thank you enough for your contribution to Tiny Doors ATL. Oh! And we wired a tiny light over the door, so you can even visit at night!

Over two hundred families, businesses, and individuals joined our Brick Campaign and trusted us with names, sweet messages, dates, and inside jokes to engrave on tiny bricks around Door #8. While we have a solid process for creating a door, we’ve never attempted an engraved brick facade! Karen and Sarah, the co-founders of Tiny Doors ATL, along with two incredible volunteers, Rachel and Pascal, put over 60 hours of work into the creation Door #8.

Our a vision for the wall included a tiny light above the door, but weren’t exactly sure of how to make it happen. No problem! This project gives us the opportunity to consult with experts from other fields and we love growing our connections with small, independent businesses in Atlanta. The talented folks over at Ack Electronics helped us make our lighting vision a reality and we are so pleased with the results.

measure twice, mold once

Now that our fundraiser is complete we can get back to what we love most- creating thoughtful installations!  Our newest door features messages and images from YOU, the sponsors of our successful Brick Campaign!

After finishing the measurements for Door #8, which will be installed in Cabbagetown in December, we will make a test mold and then cast the final product. We want all of your tiny messages to look awesome AND hold up in the elements! We can’t wait to show you more when the test casts come back.
