Project Description

Unity in 3 Parts

large-scale art project

Unity in 3 Parts: a Rosenwald School Homecoming mobilizes a team of artists, educators and local people with innovative presentation and education along 1.9 miles of Fairmont, for neighborhood transformation through the life of the rehabilitation of Historic Fairmont Rosenwald School. Among entrepreneurial bent, community driven public art and dynamic learning initiatives for a variety of children and social groups, Unity in 3 Parts signalizes the power of place to initiate dialogue between rich architectural and cultural traditions embedded in Fairmont Rosenwald School. In previous project phases, glo activated immersive art experiences, shops, and conversation in local schools, gardens, and Main St. sidewalks.

Components of the project include Bridge Path, an interactive sidewalk chalk project spanning the length of Griffin’s only downtown bridge, across the train tracks, to transcend historic divide of the American south; Alley gardens, re-purposing Fairmont’s back paths and alleys in to vibrant outdoor areas; Dream-up spaces, community pop-up space for local dance theatre, and puppetry troupes; World Children’s Exhibition, the debut art show at the restored school with local k–1st graders, Freedpeople photography exhibition, Rainbow Stations, a pilot project for affordable artists’ housing in an underserved neighborhood and SEARCH ENGINE.
