A unique public art display to showcase a rotation of original works by regional artists in an urban setting, The Art Box at North Hills is a collaboration between North Hills and the NCMA. The collaboration features regional and NC art and share information about NCMA exhibitions and program opportunities with the community. The Art Box is open on the ground level of the Bank of America Tower, at the corner of Six Forks and Dartmouth Roads.
The current installation will last 12 months and features Lincoln Hancock and Mollie Earls’ Sleeper, a dynamic dreamscape along an urban thoroughfare. In the space between thought and expression, we locate pathways towards the actualization of the more ideal worlds we seek. Sleeper conjures ritual and magic; science and logic; systems thinking and design; art and music. This installation is a moment of stillness amidst flux — unperturbed by the synaptic pulse of activity outside, the dreaming figure suggests we all take a moment to look inward and imagine how we might chart our own course towards better realities.
