Elsewhere invites visitors to participate in Sheryl Oring’s installation of “I Wish To Say,” where letters will be sent to the White House and carbon copies displayed in the museum.

In a 60-year-old thrift shop, a collection of shoes intertwine with dolls on top of albums between books resting on typewriters beside scattered xylophones. To make sense of what could be immediately perceived as visual chaos, Elsewhere has made a museum and artist residency to discover meaning from what may otherwise be simply “stuff.”

It makes art a collective process.

Community members vote on which arts projects to fund at Elsewhere’s PICNIC fundraiser.

In my previous post, I gave you a glimpse into the Media Hub story on the evolving art community of Greensboro through the necessity of having spaces and resources for emerging artists to produce work.

By using the city itself as a canvas, the Greensboro Mural Project is working to make art accessible to everyone. For their current project, they’re inviting community members to write their own “Love Letters to the City,” which will influence murals in each district.

What you’ll find in the final photo story of the evolving arts community in Greensboro is that artists are finding ways to get creative with the spaces they have to work with, and that when people have something they need to say, they will find a way to say it.
