Over the next few weeks of May through early July, the installation of the first major public art work of the Durham SmART Initiative will occur on the Corcoran Garage façade. The Corcoran Garage Art Wrap is the first major public art work of the Durham SmART Vision Plan and will create a monumental signature gateway element for the Blackwell/Corcoran/Foster SmART Corridor. The art wrap is designed by nationally recognized public artist Olalekan (LEk) Jeyifous, who was selected from a competitive and rigorous review of 107 artist applications from across the United States. Local vendors Steel City Services, LLC, and Mosca Design are key partners in fabrication and installation. The current 4 banners depicting dancer Andrew Lamar will be creatively repurposed by American Dance Festival.
