Atlanta Arts Scene Explained by Deer Bear Wolf

Website helps prove the ATL arts scene is a force to be reckoned with

When it comes to Atlanta's vibrant arts scene, those who want to be in-the-know need look no further than Deer Bear Wolf. The brainchild of Davy Minor, the site features news about events taking place across the city that would be hard to discover unless you were in-the-know.

Minor, who's been in Atlanta for 17 years, makes it his job to become immersed in the city's arts world. Vice interviewed Minor to get his take on what's going on in the Atlanta arts scene. It's definitely worth a look.

Ranging across the spectrum of food, music, visual art, and performance, the interview offers a look into the best of the best, from the man who likens his website to "gasoline for the fire." From the growth of South Downtown to tips to find hidden art, the interview has the lowdown for those looking for the hookup on the city's unrefined artistic side.

For a more visual experience — and to glimpse the backstories behind the sort of street murals Atlanta has become known for — have a gander at our photo roundup from November.
