The 11th annual Winston-Salem light project explores the relationship between urban development/gentrification and the individuals and neighborhoods it effects.
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. 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, “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 Highway 52.
