From the Press Release:
When life gives you failures, turn it in to PUBLIC ART!
The Green Room Project was conceived after a failed public art attempt on NC State University’s Centennial Campus. The idea spawned from a short walk and realizing what space is available for an art installation, and what could possibly be undertaken. As Centennial Campus reinvents itself as an innovation district and a destination for collaboration, the idea of a “City within a City” came to mind.
Greg Carter and Jude DesNoyer, both NC State University employees (Greg a professor in the College of Design, Jude an activation programmer in the Real Estate Office), had a passion to bring some sort of installation to life…in hopes that whatever was created could be shown to the people of NC State, City of Raleigh, and visitors from near and far.
“A City within A City” unites Centennial Campus; a community of students, professionals, university employees, who come from different places around the globe. Together we are one city and this piece represents how we can bring all of our cultures together
Sit down. Relax. Take a moment. Imagine what is taking place in your city.
