Community - Public Art - Episode 7


The Accessibility Project is an effort to reintroduce people to downtown Sumter by giving them a chance to experience art in public places. Many of the public art works are considered site-specific, or inspired by the surrounding cultural and natural landscape.

Site-specific work creates a dialogue between the art, the place and the viewer. The viewer is invited to interact with their environment, and often leaves with a new, or different, appreciation for their surroundings. In this video, Accessibility curator Charlie Holmes describes the inspiration behind the annual public art project.
