Miss Wilkins of the Carnegie Center walks you through the process. I look forward to seeing your walk on the Wick’s wall.
Help us paint a digital portrait of New Albany!
Please join local artist, Tiffany Carbonneau, in creating an outdoor video projection as part of the 2013 New Albany Public Art Project: Bicentennial Series. She is looking for digital home videos created by residents of Kentuckiana that convey the current identity and landscape of New Albany, Indiana. These videos could show parades, sports games, the River, the aftermath of weather events, news stories, etc. Please note that the final video projection will not include sound so your video should share your story through visuals. If your video is selected, it will be a part of a collage of videos that will be projected on the side of Wick’s Pizza for two years! To upload your video, go to: goo.gl/JOS0H, login: firstname.lastname@example.org, password: newalbany. Video submissions must be uploaded to the above website; DVDs and videotapes cannot be accepted. If you have any questions please contact artist Tiffany Carbonneau at email@example.com.
Tiffany Carbonneau’s rendering of an outdoor video projection on the theme of Museums & History
About her interpretation of the theme Museums & History for the 2013 Public Art Project, Carbonneau writes, “YouTube has become a cultural phenomenon and an online museum of human culture, from personal to local and global contexts. Rather than the viewer acting as a passive audience… they have now become active participants in not only the creation of history, but also the documentation and cataloguing of that history.” In order to highlight our history as told through this new form of storytelling, she will take a sampling of videos from New Albany to create a video collage of the contemporary history of New Albany, as created by its residents. The video will be projected onto the south-facing wall of Wick’s Pizza, located on State Street near its intersection with Main Street, in the shape of the building that once stood next door.
The New Albany Public Art Project: Bicentennial Series (www.napublicart.org and www.facebook.com/napublicart) is a 4-year program featuring a rotating schedule of outdoor artworks that will be installed each year in the downtown area, beginning in 2010 and leading up to this year’s commemoration of New Albany’s bicentennial. The 2013 art installations will be installed in April and May. The community is invited to explore the artworks and talk with the artists during the New Albany Public Art Walk on June 22, 6-9 pm (rain date June 29). The New Albany Public Art Project: Bicentennial Series originated from a partnership between the Carnegie Center for Art and History and the New Albany Urban Enterprise Association.
Thank you for your help, and please let me know if you have any questions.
