Gallery 992 is the brainchild of Grammy Award winning saxophonist and West Side native Kebbi Williams. “Gallery 992 is a place for the arts, first and foremost. Secondly, it’s for the community to blossom, thrive in goodness and it’s about education. Giving back. We want neighbors to walk to international greatness. We aim to be the most top-notch place for creativity in the universe. Spiritual culture is a big part of the West End.” Williams says.
Williams is the bandleader of the Atlanta rogue jazz ensemble The Wolfpack but also spends much of his time on the road playing high-profile gigs as an original member of the Grammy-winning Tedeschi Trucks Band. He also launched Music in the Park (MITP), the annual diverse music festival, at the turn of the decade. Gallery 992 is an evolutionary stand-alone child of the festival’s success.
“We have to expose people to these kinds of higher art experiences. Deeper and smarter art that’s more engaging for your mind and your soul. There’s a war going on. We’re going extinct. When we go extinct there ain’t going to be no more music. No more art. So we gotta go out here and fight for this.The West End is a diamond in the rough. The last best kept secret in Atlanta — maybe in America.”
Gallery 992 is ground zero. The apex. The present…the past...and the Future.
"West End Atlanta’s Gallery 992 is the epicenter of activity for the non-profit organization, Music In The Park Atlanta, founded by tenor saxophonist Kebbi Williams. Seven days a week, 52 weeks a year, 992 is home to concerts, art exhibits, music classes and clinics, yoga, jazz jams, dance classes, films, art classes, tai chi and fitness classes, dj house parties, children’s activities, and more. The Mission of Music In the Park is to enlighten young performers and inspire vibrancy in communities through music and performing arts. The organization has served 5100 students, engaged over 300 professional musicians and presented to 15,000 people over the past 5 years. An effort that began in response to the absence of music education in schools and limited arts programming in his neighborhood is growing to fill empty spaces, heal broken places and keep the music playing for the next generation of musicians. Kebbi continues to do what he has always done, break down barriers and push envelopes. Now he does it musically and otherwise."
