Autoeater Statue | Midtown Atlanta GA

In Midtown Atlanta GA – one of the most walkable urban areas in the U.S. – is a fitting statue. It looks like some biomorphic form is eating a car, more specifically, a Fiat Panda. A public art project by the Midtown Alliance, the Autoeater statue was created by artists Venske and Spänle in Carrara, Italy in 2017 and now stands in a high-traffic intersection in Midtown Atlanta. In fact, over 2,000 people walk through it daily. That’s better traffic than any gallery!
