About the Artist

Legge Lewis Legge LLC, (LLL) is an award-winning art and architecture studio founded in 2001 by architect Murray Legge FAIA and filmmaker Deborah E. Lewis, and artist Andrea Legge. We work as a team on conception and design and practical work is divided according the partners’ skills: Architect Murray Legge FAIA, is founder of Murray Legge Architecture. Deborah Eve Lewis is a filmmaker, DP, cinematographer and film professor at the University of Texas at Austin. Andrea Legge is an artist and designer. 

We feel that public art is by definition site- and community-specific, and we don’t approach a project with preconceived concepts, apart from meeting practical requirements. We see public art as creative infrastructure for community that incorporates local cultural and natural histories.

About Raleigh Public Art

Mission: To create and integrate diverse artworks into Raleigh's landscape in order to establish a vibrant visual environment that provides public places with civic distinction, as well as fostering meaningful connections between people and place.

History: In 2009, the City of Raleigh adopted ordinances creating the Percent Art Program. The program allocates 1% of funds from capital construction projects for public art. Public art associated with City of Raleigh construction projects is managed by the Raleigh Arts Office. More information about Raleigh Arts can be found at https://raleighnc.gov/raleigh-arts  

The Atlantic Avenue Public Art Project is funded by the 2017 Transportation Bond. Capital Improvement Projects that meet the Percent for Art Ordinance standards, such as this one, are eligible to use 1% of construction funding for Public Art. Inclusion of aesthetics and artwork is an investment in our communities, with a focus toward community identity and equity in quality of life. Communities gain cultural, social, and economic value through public art.
