2. The Porch Project : Black Lunch Tables
Heather Hart

The Porch Project: Black Lunch Tables by Heather Hart is an interactive sculpture designed for intimate conversations and community events for Elsewhere's South Elm Projects. It takes the lunchroom phenomenon of self-segregation as its starting point, evoking the pivotal Greensboro sit-ins at the Woolworth’s lunch counter in 1960. While its form is based on principles of sacred geometry and Dunbar’s Number, a theory of the perfect threshold of a functional conversation. These tables for five might also serve as an activated memorial for the Greensboro Five: Sandi Smith, Dr. James Waller, Bill Sampson, Cesar Cauce, Dr. Michael Nathan. This Porch Project reserves a place for conversation among neighbors, and a space to consider and challenge the evolving socio-political landscape at this intersection of our community. 

Opening Events Rescheduled to October 24 + 25

Due to the inclement weather forecast, the opening events for "The Porch Project: Black Lunch Tables" scheduled for this weekend, October 3 and 4, have been postponed until Saturday, October 24 and Sunday, October 25.

On Saturday, October 24, from 12pm to 2pm, Community Potluck and Performance
The public is invited to a community potluck and an afternoon of performances.

On Sunday, October 25, at 11am and 2pm, Black Lunch Table
Heather Hart and collaborator Jina Valentine host a conversation series that addresses issues facing artists of color in our area and support for black communities in Greensboro. Seating is limited, please contact Heather Hart at
  • For the 11am session, “Black Lunch Table”, artists of African descent are invited to be part of recording our histories, art history. It is part of Hart’s ten year practice of holding salon style conversations for Black artists across the country to consider their perspectives on arts production and participation in community change. 
  • For the 2pm session, “Black Lunch Table: Black Lives Matter”, the public is invited to be part of an integrated table recording our ideas, sharing our thoughts and forming new connections with fellow community members. Using the idea of the lunch table as a discursive site where social connections are made, actions are organized, social hierarchies revealed, and power dynamics are played out, this session will offer focused conversations on the divisions and connections that exist within our community, while also laying out new productive relationships to continue the movement for dismantling institutional racism.

All events take place at the site of the project on the corner of Bragg Street and Arlington Street. Contact for more information.
