The Carnegie Center for Art & History hosted its 2016 edition of the New Albany Public Art Project event at the New Albany Riverfront Amphitheater on September 24th. This year’s event was titled #IAmPublicArt and incorporated a wide range of opportunities for visitors to engage in creative expression, participate in hands-on activities for all ages, and enjoy food and drink from local vendors.
The event will featured three Pop-Up Art Installations created by students from local universities – one piece each by students from Indiana University Southeast, University of Louisville, and Kentucky College of Art + Design. The installations were unique creations employing multiple media made specifically for the spaces they inhabit, to be viewed and experienced for one night only. In addition to the art installations, there was a strong slate of performers from Louisville and Southern Indiana on the Amphitheater stage curated by Louisville artist and renaissance man, Jecorey Arthur, aka 1200. The performances this year included:
DJ Sam Sneed of WFPK’s Night Visions Radio
