Free Art! Studio Portraits
My project FREE ART! was produced as part of a residency I did for the Hambidge Creative Hive at Colony Square and consisted of three parts. I was one of twelve artists who were given spaces at a midtown Atlanta, Georgia mall for three months in the spring of 2017.
For the first part of the project, I had a portrait studio set up where I photographed anyone passing by. Within a week, I made 8.5” x 11” prints of my favorite from our session and gave them to the person. The only stipulation was that they had to come back to my Hive studio to pick them up. I wanted them to make a return trip to Colony Square and, hopefully, spend a few minutes seeing the continued changes in the other Hives.
