    Mi Casa Your Casa - visitors enjoying the hammocks in the Sifly Piazza

    This summer, the High invites Atlanta to enjoy the interactive installation Mi Casa, Your Casa. Located in the center of the Woodruff Arts Center's campus on the Carroll Slater Sifly Piazza, the installation features 36 three-dimensional, open frames in the shape of a house.

    The houses form a blank canvas for community engagement and activity in a basic form recognizable and relatable to all – the home. Created by contemporary Mexican designers Héctor Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena, the vibrant red houses invite visitors to be a part of the art.

    Mi Casa, Your Casa is a welcoming space where visitors can play, create and relax. Hammocks, swings, easels, bins of chalk, and buckets of bubble water, among other elements, offer daytime “playtime” options. The installation also becomes a stage for performances and a place for art-making.

    The Woodruff divisions (Alliance Theatre, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Arts for Learning) will utilize the installation for performances, youth education and more. The High is also collaborating with artists and performers from across the Atlanta arts spectrum to enliven the space. These highly unique and original collaborations will allow visitors to experience some of Atlanta's most compelling artists in exciting new combinations as they explore new territory and branch out in fresh and unexpected directions to bring the Piazza to life with art.

    This summer's pilot project is part of a two-year initiative to activate the Piazza and engage the community in the vibrant campus of the Woodruff Arts Center. Esrawe and Cadena will design a second installation for the Piazza for the summer of 2015.

    Mi Casa, Your Casa uses the home as its inspiration, and every house has its rules, so...
