Hearts United via Second Sight Studio in Franklinton

vday

Second Sight Studio wants to bring together the community of Franklinton and Columbus this Valentine’s Day through heart art!

Interested participants are invited to create heart-shaped or heart-themed hearts on cardboard, cloth, plastic, and any other element-withstanding materials, and bring it to the lot at Bellows End (across from Second Sight Studios in Franklinton) to be hung and displayed along the chain-link fences of the schoolyard. Viewers can stroll the fences of hearts and enjoy the art, and refreshments will be served in the gallery.

This project is part of the global observance of One Billion Rising’s “V-Day,” a movement to draw attention to the need to end to violence against women. Last year, there were over 100 Columbus artist participants from elementary-school age all the way through adults. This year, “Hearts United” is two cities strong, with a concurrent happening at House Tremont, an alternative art space in Cleveland.

The Hearts United for One Billion Rising is an open-participation temporary public “exhibition” and will be on display Feb. 14 through 15. Hanging will take place Feb. 14th from 11 am to 2 pm. Take-down begins at 3 PM on Sunday, Feb. 15.

Participants are asked to register by contacting Mona Gazala at Second Sight Studio, so that your works may be acknowledged!

Public Art Chattanooga

January 30  

Public Art Chattanooga is seeking qualifications from artists or artist teams for the commission and installation of a mural at 2001 Chestnut Street at West 20th Street in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  Up to three finalists will be selected to develop concept proposals for this project.  Each finalist will be paid a $500 stipend.  The project budget for the selected commission is $25,000.  The Chestnut Street Gateway Mural will provide a transformative and dynamic visual anchor to this important gateway.

The site is located on the southwest perimeter of Chattanooga’s revitalized Southside neighborhood, and is adjacent to Finley Stadium and First Tennessee Pavilion, home to a variety of heavily attended public events including sports, a major fine art festival, and the Chattanooga Market, a weekly community farmer’s and craft market.  Once a blighted and severely neglected industrial district, the Southside has experienced a rebirth through reinvestment and is being transformed into a thriving and urban neighborhood.  Only blocks away, a 3.5-mile extension of the award-winning Tennessee Riverpark is under construction that will connect Chattanooga;s downtown to South Chattanooga and significantly increase pedestrian and bike traffic.  Here, old and new neighbors embrace diversity, urban living, and the return of locally-owned businesses.
