Must See Ceilings - 2012 Phoenix Flies Mar 9-25

Things are really looking up and so should you. So much to see at Atlanta Preservation Center's Phoenix Flies.

The Ceiling at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. This is where the Downtown Progressive Organ Recital starts on March 18th at 3pm.

No excuse to miss this: history, art, architecture, music, and a little downtown walk. I'll see you there! History, design, and architecture bloggers do your duty!

The whole 2012 Phoenix Flies Schedule.

Central Presbyterian Church is old and extraordinary, nothing else like it in Atlanta.

You can see the red chancel ceiling at All Saints Episcopal Church on March 18 and still have time for the Organ Crawl and that's exactly what you should do.

The Ceiling at St. Paul's United Methodist Church is heavenly blue and you should see it on March 17.

After St. Paul's walk across the street to enjoy the porch of The Grant Mansion, home of the Atlanta Preservation Center. They may have finished the ceiling by now, go see. This is my favorite porch in Atlanta.

P1080479-2011-03-12-Inman-Park-Methodist-CeilingLinkThe Inman Park United Methodist Church is open Friday, March 23, 2012 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm Reservations required: 404-522-9322. You haven't been there? Really?

This is just one of Stonehenge's ceilings. They aren't in ruin, they aren't restored to brand new condition, they've been lived in. Mark it off your bucket list on Thursday, March 22, 2012
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

See Peachtree Christian Church on Wednesday, March 21, 2012 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm. You've driven by hundreds of times, now see inside.

Rhodes Hall might not be your style, yet. See it Saturday, March 10, 2012 10:00 am - 11:00 am. It's home to the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation and it's a knockout.

Hammer beams at Druid Hills Presbyterian Church. Thursday, March 22, 2012 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm.

It's First Presbyterian first time on the tour. Look up while you are there. Tuesday March 13, 2012 5:00 pm.

It's Saint Mark United Methodist Church's first time on Pheonix Flies. Saturday March 17, 2012 12:00 pm. You'll want to go see for yourself.

That should get you started.
