MAY 2015

Agustina Woodgate Paints Hopscotch Across South Elm Neighborhood
Beginning on Monday, April 27 Miami-based artist Agustina Woodgate and a team of community volunteers painted hundreds of numbers down the sidewalks in the South Elm neighborhood for Hopscotch. Inspired by the popular street game, this extended version of Hopscotch is an ongoing site-specific street intervention by Woodgate and part of Elsewhere's curatorial initiative, South Elm Projects. The project will premiere as part of First Friday today, May 1st, at Elsewhere.

Elsewhere Hosts Site Visit Weekend for South Elm Projects
From April 9-11 artists gathered at Elsewhere in preparation for South Elm Projects, an ArtPlace America funded program that rethinks public art in urban spaces. These artists spent two days visiting with local business owners, organizations, and community members to gain a sense of the neighborhood and to inspire potential work. On Friday night they presented their work alongside Greensboro business owners in the neighborhood. The artists will be creating community-engaged work in the South Elm neighborhood through November.
