Art at North Hills
For those of you that shop at North Hills, you may notice that the center has placed predominate pieces of art around the campus to promote local artisans. The most recognized might be the light installation by Raleigh artist Nate Sheaffer at the intersection of Six Forks and Dartmouth; a collaboration between North Hills and the North Carolina Art Museum. Another is hidden on a wall beside Cowfish, painted by world renowned street artist Kelsey Montague. Montague's art went viral after Taylor Swift stopped to take a picture in front of her piece in New York's Nolita neighborhood. Along with giving blank walls a facelift, North Hills has begun filling their vacant tenant spaces with art as well! If you didn't know that, well, now you do!
The most recent art on display is in a vacant space between Von Kekel and Vivace on the Lassiter side of North Hills. North Carolina artist Mary Carter Taub installed this punchy, colorful art that is for the public and Midtown shoppers to appreciate! I was the very first guest to see the space after it was finished last week, and couldn't help but snap a few shots. My baby nephew, Leo, even came by to take a look! Can you guess what her artwork is made out of? Take a closer look...
If you're in the area, drop in to see this colorful and creative art by Mary Carter Taub, and tag @VisitNorthHills to let them know you took a peek! Also, open your eyes and take a walk around North Hills. You may find more of these installations if you take the time to pause and aimlessly stroll (hint, hint).
I am also happy to announce that I am part of the North Hills Circle for the next 9 months, so be sure check in with me about special announcements and events that will be happening at North Hills!
(And if you guessed duct tape - you were right! I'm getting all sorts of ideas for my bedroom now...)
