DISPLAY OF ARTVEE MOBILE ECO-STUDIO BY JASON MCDONALD AND FEATURING AN INSTALLATION BY SAMANTHA HILL
Fall 2013 Environmental Artist-In-Residence Jason MacDonald’s mobile installation entitled, A Way From Home is built from a reclaimed industrial container and environmentally conscious elements such as a rainwater collection system and beds for various native and edible
plants. The mobile studio will ultimately reside in the Brightwalk community and serve as a site for future art happenings and installations by subsequent Environmental Artists-In-Residence. Installed within McDonald’s work is Chicago-based artist Samantha Hill’s Reflections in the Moment (A Kinship Project Art Facilitation). During her Fall 2013 residency, Hill developed numerous connections with community members and this work is a depiction of her experiences that is the catalyst for her Brightwalk at Historic Double Oaks Oral Histories Project in Charlotte. Her goal for this project was to record the stories of the former occupants of Double Oaks as well as the new residents of Brightwalk and the Statesville Avenue Corridor to create an artwork which captures the essence of this particular urban transformation.
