Imagine Art Here

Overview

Imagine Art Here projects leverage the arts to make communities more vibrant while gathering feedback on the arts through community engagement and temporary public art installations.

INOUT in Seven Corners

In Seven Corners, surcreative, an artist team, will engage residents, employees and visitors through a visually compelling temporary public art project that will gather input on the role of the arts in the redevelopment of Seven Corners.

The artist team will engage community members through an artist designed photo booth that will gather feedback through a digital questionnaire and photograph community members for inclusion in the arts installation. The photo booth will pop-up at community events and locations (hotlink to flyer) throughout Seven Corners in April. The questionnaire and photo uploads are also available through the project website and Twitter.

An 8 foot interactive cube including projections of the community photos will be installed from May 12- June 23, 2018 at 6307 Arlington Boulevard (at the intersection of Arlington Boulevard and Sleepy Hollow Road).  Community engagement activities will continue throughout the installation period with photo booth sessions and live projections each Saturday night from 7-9pm.
