Transient Transfer Greensboro (TTG) is a community-based project based on Fatimah Tuggar’s 2008 exhibition and collaboration with the Bronx Museum of the Arts and NYC’s Public Art Fund. In Greensboro, Tuggar and Green Hill Center’s Director of Education and Community Partnership, Mary Young worked with art students and art specialists from four local schools to capture images and sounds of what the students “like” and what they would like to see “change” in their community. Tuggar assembled many of the images as individual collage elements, which are included in the interactive project presented via the Transient Transfer Greensboro link at (www.greenhillcenter.org).
Each viewer, is invited to participate in TTG by creating a personal collage using the assembled images. Tuggar will select a series of collages to be reproduced and displayed in public spaces across the city. On Mar. 23, 2011, from 5:30-6:30pm, Green Hill Center will facilitate a public forum, where the artwork will be the platform for discussions about the divergent and convergent perspectives of Greensboro as a community.
We extend our gratitude to the artist, students and teachers from Canterbury School, Western Guilford High School, Smith High School and the Newcomers School for their collaboration on the Transient Transfer Greensboro project.
The Wachovia Wells Fargo Foundation and an anonymous donor have generously provided support for Transient Transfer Greensboro.
