"Dottie" at Atlantic Station
Artist : Aleigha Reott
Piano Donation: Susan Butler
Location: Atlantic Station
Find and play Dottie front of the Regal Atlantic Station Stadium Theater.
Artist Aleigha Reott submitted a stunning concept that’s just perfect for the movie theater at Atlantic Station. Known to her art students as "Ms. Pink", her vibrant personality pops right out of this design.
“Atlantic Station is thrilled to welcome ‘Dottie the Piano’ to our property,” said Daniel Easton, Atlantic Station’s director of marketing. “As Midtown’s original repurposed lifestyle development, we’re always looking for new ways to delight our guests, and we’re happy to partner with an organization like Play Me Again Pianos, and our Art in the Park instructor, Aleigha Reott, who created and hand-painted the design.
“I wanted this piano to be fun and eye-catching; something that is sure to get attention and have people want to play it,” said Reott. “This is a special and meaningful project for me as I am dedicating it to my late Grandmother Inez who inspired me and encouraged my passion for art. A purple ladybug will be hidden among the dots in her honor. See if you can find it!”
We're thankful that Grandmother Inez nurtured the love for art in her granddaughter, and we're sure she would be pleased with the positive ripples throughout our community as a result. As a matter of fact, we think the ladybug should be named "Inez." What do you think?
