Individuals, families, businesses, and organizations of Winston- Salem, NC lent over 100 ladders for me to create this installation in Old Salem. I built the sculpture by using the ladders to hold each other up tying them together with cable ties. I intended to create a metaphor for the community emphasizing the strength it finds in interdependence, mutual support, and trust as well as its hopes and aspirations. The project was organized by SECCA (The South Eastern Center for Contemporary Art) as part of their 2009 public art series "Inside-Out: Artist's in the Community". The exhibition of the Rise Up Winston Salem installation took place March 7 April 17, 2009 on the grounds of Old Salem Museum and Gardens.
