Free Art! Environments
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.
The second part of Free Art! was a documentation of the artist studios that were part of the Creative Hive as they were transformed from vacant mall spaces into unusual and dynamic environments by the artists. I made 17" x 22" prints of my favorite images and posted them on several kiosks next to the food court with a sign that said "Free Art! Please take one." inviting passersby to take any pictures they chose. As soon as one was taken I replaced it. I gave away dozens of prints over a two month period.
