Dashboard is an arts agency dedicated to challenging artists to create work in unfamiliar, unused and untraditional spaces. The organization is based here in Atlanta, and since it was founded in 2010, Dashboard has put on 42 exhibits in 7 US cities.

Their latest exhibition is in a venue that has seen artwork before. “Women Change Agents: The Photographs of Dr. Doris Derby” is now on view through April 5 in the Atrium Gallery at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
