Barefoot Island

April 7 - November 6

Delighted to invite you to the second cycle of Barefoot Island in South Fulton, Georgia.

A new sculptural work exploring our relationship to Southern ecosystems and the shifting nature of topography and natural resource lines. The work is created in close collaboration with social practice artist and Georgia Tech resident beekeeper Janelle Dunlap, architect and street art producer Keif Schleifer, and musician and composer Kebbi Williams.

The nomadic themes and project’s name reference stallings great-grandfather of the same name. P.M. Barefoot was a small-time gardener raised in North Carolina near the Lumbee River, a descendant of the Lumbee Tribe, who migrated South and helped raise the artist’s momma and her three sisters. So Barefoot Island came out of a need to continue connecting with and relying upon the South’s waterways and public land in order to better care for it, and by proximity, for each other.

Barefoot Island cycle one was made possible, in part, by support from the Nexus Fund, Atlanta Contemporary, with regional support from the Andy Warhol Foundation. Barefoot Island is supported by Cochran Mill Park, and in collaboration with the Parks Commission, with support from the Mayor’s Office, City of Chattahoochee Hills. Barefoot Island and public initiatives are made possible by logistical, site support of glo platform. Barefoot Island cycle two is made possible with support from South Fulton Institute.
