This year’s theme – LIGHT as a Feather – indicates our particular interest in artists who engage lightly with the land. With an emphasis on co-creation [and not competition] with nature, we hope artists will invoke the invisible histories and subtle energies felt when spending time, unplugged, in the preserve. Feathers not only refer to Herons and other birds, but also honor the spiritual presence and heritage of the Creek (Muscogee) and Cherokee Indians who lived here 200 years ago. With a highway buzzing beside us, we can learn a lot from the way their cultures left few permanent marks on this remarkable 30-acre riverscape.
