on the street museum Installations
I Was Here is a public art project triggered by the realization that erasing the humanities from the classroom and the general population creates a need for a public art designed to educate, nourish and enlighten with powerful content and beauty.
This project seeks to take the humanities out of the citadel – out of the art gallery, the university, the museum, and bring it clearly into public view through an On The Street Museum.
The medium itself is part of the place making work. The pieces are printed on large scale translucent tapestries and recreated as roman shades that can be raised and lowered. This allows business owners an installation they can control. And because the tapestries are translucent, letting light through allows the images to be viewed from the street and in the interior space.
