Rise Together Kingsport
October 20 @ 9:00 am - November 12 @ 5:00 pm
Rise Together Kingsport is a community engagement public art project. Artist Charlie Brouwer has been working with schools, meeting members of all parts of communities and asking a simple question: Can I borrow a ladder? Ladders help us reach higher. And ladders can represent our hopes and dreams. Charlie will use all of these well-labeled ladders to build a monumental temporary sculpture on the lawn of our Renaissance Center that will be a metaphor for our whole community. Ladders can be any shape, size or color; they can be broken; they can be step-stools, chairs, or toy ladders. They can be hand-made. Each will be carefully labeled for this project and lenders cataloged on theRisetogetherKingsport.org website. The ladders will Rise Together, leaning on each other, supported by each other. And yes, like good neighbors we will return your ladder or if you like and with the assistance of Habitat for Humanity we will find your ladder another home.
