As part of a two-year initiative to activate the Sifly Piazza and engage the community in the vibrant campus of the Woodruff Arts Center designed by Renzo Piano, the High Museum of Art unveiled an ambitious interactive design installation entitled Mi Casa-Your Casa, conceptualized and created by contemporary Mexican designers-in-residence Héctor Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena.
Mi Casa-Your Casa is a site-specific installation that will invite the community to actively participate in the life of the entire Woodruff Arts Center campus through recreation, social interaction, performances, and art-making activities.
Mi Casa-Your Casa is a welcoming space where visitors can play, create and relax. Hammocks, swings, easels, bins of chalk, and buckets of bubble water, among other elements, offer daytime “playtime” options. The Woodruff divisions (Alliance Theatre, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Arts for Learning) will utilize the installation for performances, youth education and more. The High is also collaborating with artists and performers from across the Atlanta arts spectrum to enliven the space. These highly unique and original collaborations will allow visitors to experience some of Atlanta’s most compelling artists in exciting new combinations as they explore new territory and branch out in fresh and unexpected directions to bring the Piazza to life with art.
