Take a tour of the tunnel – and the art Thursday evening

You can get an inside and underneath view of the exhibition with of Install It 3 – above and below with a free tour at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 16.
The installation art exhibition, on view through May 24, is located in the Vista Greenway/former train tunnel at the intersection of Lincoln and Lady streets. Artists Michaela Pilar Brown, Bri Kinard, Amanda Ladymon, Kara Gunter, Wendell George Brown and Kimberly Bookman have created works which respond to the history of Washington Street, a once-thriving African-American commercial and social district under which the tunnel runs, and the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement. The artists have created works that include photography, wax, plaster, paper, earth and grass.
The tour will be given by exhibition curator Jeffrey Day, several of the participating artists, historian Ramon Jackson and community members.
The exhibition, sponsored by the Congaree Vista Guild and part of the annual art event Artista Vista, is open daily from dawn to dark.
