UNC School of the Arts, Winston-Salem Light Project: Lines

( Fri., Apr. 12, 2019 - Thu., Apr. 25, 2019 )

South Main Street and Waughtown Street, Corner of S. Main St. and Waughtown St., Winston-Salem, NC 27107


Conceived, designed and built by graduating seniors from the School of Design and Production (D&P) at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA), Lines features a neighborhood of light centered around a single house typical of those found in the 1940s Belews Street neighborhood of Winston-Salem, a mixed-race, working-class community that was razed in the late ’50s to build U.S. 52. The art installation includes scaled homes constructed three-dimensionally of light to represent the ghosts of communities that have been demolished for a variety of urban renewal projects.


The public art installation can be viewed from sunset to sunrise daily April 5-25 at the intersection of South Main Street and Waughtown Street, a triangular point of land near the Gateway YWCA. (Changed from Apr. 5-25 TO Apr. 12-25.)
