§ SmART Kinston & Thomas Sayre

SmART Kinston is the latest member of the NC Arts Council’s SmART Initiative. As you may know from my earlier post, there are wonderful and inventive things going on in downtown. The latest is the installation of an array of earthcast sculptures by my friend, the artist Thomas Sayre. (There is a really interesting article about Thomas in the Walter Magazine.)

Probably Thomas’ most famous earthcast is at the NC Museum of Art. Here’s a classic photo:


The latest earthcasts are in a new public space in the downtown Kinston Arts & Cultural District near Mother Earth Brewery and the Neuse River and its new walkway. You really should visit Kinston if you get down to the Triangle area.
