Atlantic Coastline Artists Station
119 Love Avenue, Downtown Tifton

A gallery of fine arts and crafts in the heart of Downtown Tifton. Invite yourself to the restored railroad freight depot — a historic spot itself — to see the permanent collection and changing exhibitions of work by talented multi-national artists. Take a look at the Folk Art Wall in the gardens before you enter the gallery. Hundreds of area residents built mini sculptures under the tutelage of San Francisco sculptor Ruth Asawa to create this folk wall of the community.

Open every Wednesday from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., or by special appointment. Arrange your own private tour!
