NEW ALBANY —
Along with the sculptures, paintings and video, participants got to see other forms of visual and audible art. Students from the New Albany High School Theater Department performed short pieces at different installations and musicians played in Bicentennial Park and in front of the Floyd County Government Building on Hauss Square.
Jacob Stanley, the artist who created the 2012 installation “Sweat Equity,” said he’s glad to see art becoming an active player in the city.
“I’m really excited that the Carnegie Center does a good job of commissioning local artists,” Stanley said. “For a town this size, it’s great that people here welcome forward-thinking, sometimes really challenging public art. Hopefully, a lot of the art around here brings up good conversations about this town and where it’s headed.”
