I’ve completed another week of work in Athens, Ga., this time with guest artist Wing Young Huie, a Minneapolis-based photographer known for his projects that challenge people to bring their hidden selves into public view.
Wing and our host, the Athens Cultural Affairs Commission, organized a series of scheduled and guerilla chalk talk workshops. The work will be exhibited throughout Athens later this year.
Huie held two workshops at Cedar Shoals High School, whose students were in the midst of grappling with a violent crime that had occurred on campus. Athens Banner Herald reporter Jim Thompson captured the moment elegantly in this article, “Artists Chalk Talk Prompts Cedar Shoals High School Class to Think Deeply.”
