when: July 13th 2013
where: 1600 Meeting Street - Charleston, South Carolina
The local non-profit, Enough Pie, put out a call for artists to help "awaken" a recently purchased, 100-year old building, located in the upper peninsula area of downtown Charleston. The building hadn't been occupied since the 80's, had no working electricity or water, and was in all-around disrepair. The goal was to allow a select group of artists to transform their individual spaces (through a wide variety of mediums and methods) and host a one day art show/performance event before the building was to be renovated later that year (into a creative hub for artists and creative businesses!).
Here's a link to Enough Pie's website and the Awakening Announcement.
The conceptual sketch of my vision for the installation that i submitted to Enough Pie to be in the running to be a selected artist:
The before of my space, the set-up process, and one of my extra-special helpers…
THE DAY OF THE EVENT!!! (and a yarn-bombed entrance to the building.)
