Creative Greensboro, what the City of Greensboro calls its office of arts and culture, has announced that the work of 10 local visual artists will be featured on the 11 digital kiosks in downtown Greensboro.

The 10 artists who will have their work featured on the kiosks beginning on Monday, Feb. 14 were chosen from 34 artists who applied.  Along with having their art displayed on the kiosks, each artist received a $500 honorarium.

Greensboro’s Chief Creative Economy Officer Ryan Deal, the head of Creative Greensboro, said in a press release, “We’re excited to showcase this curated selection of artwork over the next year throughout Greensboro’s busy downtown area.  We have selected a diversity of artists who make compelling work.  This program showcases the talent of our neighbors,and brings their creativity to the downtown landscape.”

The program was launched on Feb. 14 with the images of mixed-media artwork by Kym Cooper and Jessica Dame.  Along with the artwork the digital kiosks will display the artist’s name, the artwork’s title and medium and a QR code that viewers can use to learn more about the artists and their work.  Images of Cooper’s piece “Mama Braiding” and Dame’s “In Bloom” will be featured in rotation through April 24.  The works of the other eight artists chosen will each be displayed for 10 weeks through January 2023.

Those artists and their works are:
