Suwanee's downtown art exhibit has podcast

SUWANEE -- A guided audio tour -- or podcast -- is now available for Suwanee's downtown "SculpTour" exhibit.

The 32-minute podcast provides information about the 15 sculptures in the exhibit as well as insights from the artists. Suwanee Public Information Officer Lynne DeWilde said the audio is designed to be listened to while walking through the exhibit.

City Councilmember and Public Arts Commission Chair Dick Goodman and City of Suwanee Receptionist Annette Phelps serve as tour guides, providing directions and commentary.

The Suwanee "SculpTour," which opened in May, will run through the end of March 2012. The exhibit is funded through corporate and private donations.

DeWilde said adding podcasts to the exhibit was a "way to tie in innovations and technology." She said it was made possible through a $3,500 grant from the Gwinnett Convention and Visitors Bureau.
