Gallery Feature: The Victoria Story Booth Project
We all have our stories, and the Victoria Story Booth Project is a place where we can share stories, transform them, and place them back into the community as public art. The goal of this summer project satellite gallery is to not just create another gallery, but a community hub where ideas can be shared and transformed into something awesome, meaningful, and stranger then non-fiction. This is an experimental space that has been radicalized by the Ministry of Casual Living.
The community art large is invited to visit the satellite gallery from now until September 30th, 2014 to contribute recordings of their stories and oral histories. Artist-in-residence Aubrey Burke will then create some animated video pieces to compliment the stories, bringing together the auditory story with visual interpretation. Stories will be projected nightly at the store front gallery for viewing.
Visit the Story Booth Project this weekend as part of the 8th Annual Integrate Arts Festival en-masse art crawl at 1090 North Park Street.
