Just west of Dahlonega, Georgia in Lumpkin County there is a "funky" project that started as a chicken coup and progressed into an art gallery and outdoor sculpture garden. The gallery opened in 1995 and co-owned and operated by artists Christina White and James Sargous is in stark contrast to most art gallery around the world. Featured on Oprah Winfrey's "Oprah Goes On-Line," the Funky Chicken Art Project displays a wide variety of art mediums including jewelry, oil and acrylic paintings, fiber art, sculptures in metal, stone, and cement and mosaic art.
To go along with the name, the Funky Chicken Art Project also includes a collection of chickens and pheasants that make their home among the art. With live chickens and beautiful art it promises to be a unique gallery with a little style and a lot of funk. To learn more about the Project visit their website.
