Save the Date! - 28th International Panorama Council Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, USA (2019)

Saturday, 23 February 2019

The International Panorama Council formally invites you to join its 28th International Panorama Council Conference at the Atlanta History Center in Atlanta, Georgia, United States, September 26 – 27, 2019 with a post-conference tour on September 28, 2019 to visit museums and sites related to the 1886 cyclorama The Battle of Atlanta, which is housed in the new Lloyd and Mary Ann Whitaker Cyclorama Building.

The focus of this year’s conference is The Battle of Atlanta Cyclorama in the Atlanta History Center, our host. We will start our two-day symposium with a tour of the recently-restored 1886 Cyclorama and related exhibits on panoramas and visual entertainments, followed by a series of presentations by practitioners who have worked closely on its relocation and re-installation. Day 1 continues with sessions examining the relationship between panoramas and cities, panoramic rhetorics, and moving panoramas, and a workshop on panoramic technology. The day will conclude with two book launches. Day 2 focuses on natural and panoramic histories, period cultures of perception, twenty-first century panoramic technologies, and contemporary panoramas. The day will conclude with an interactive reflection on the sessions, a strategy session, and a farewell dinner on the Cyclorama viewing platform.

The post-conference tour includes visits to the 1921 Grant Park cyclorama building; the vantage-point for The Battle of Atlanta; the Museum of Civil and Human Rights; and Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Park. We will have lunch at Mary Mac's Tea Room, which provides a taste of traditional southern fare!
