Arts organizations in DeKalb County are galvanizing in an attempt to save the cavernous sanctuary at Scott Boulevard Baptist Church from Fuqua Development's wrecking ball. Fuqua's plans call for a mixed-use residential and retail center called "Decatur Crossing" on the property, which would sit across the street from the controversial Walmart site at Suburban Plaza. But 10 artist groups have signed a proposal with a different idea: Turn the church sanctuary into a performing arts center. Sounds like a fine idea, right? [Atlanta INtown]
