lost loose and loved
May 30- ongoing
17th & West Peachtree, Atlanta

lost loose and loved is a land art piece planted beginning May 30, 2020, by Lauri Stallings, with assistance from Christina Hiroko Kelly and Mary Jane Pennington, in a yet-to-be-developed sloping property in Midtown. During this moment of solitude and revolution, this site-specific micro-prairie has grown in to an invitation to join with community and feed our consciousness through the art of choreographing and enacting social duties related to place, the body, and environment. When the flowers were very tall, Georgia women moving and sound artists Laura Ardan, Noëlle Davé, Hiroko, Helen Kim, EmmoLei Sankofa, and Mechelle Tunstall, worked together, individually, to serenade a vast collection of wildflowers and human listeners with a lush score of textures and resilience. Original large-scale art work using photographs of Stallings collage works in situ, and Thompson's poetry, activated the site through November 16, 2020.

glo is inspired to share this unique opportunity of free and public work that reflects anew on this moment of change, and considers how we can give to the city of Atlanta and communities of which we are a part. As one part of glo's CARE Initiative, original cotton masks will be available and free on site.
