CHA ART SPACE (Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport) / 1001 Airport Rd. March 9 - April 29th

The Jewish Federation of Greater Chattanooga (JFGC) and the Chattanooga Public Library (CPL) will be showing two different pieces from Cultural Cross Ties, an art project created by Ann Law of Barking Legs Theater, starting March 9 and 10, respectively. Cultural Cross Ties is an experimental partnership between Chattanooga-based artists and artists in each of Chattanooga’s sister cities, matching new pairs from a different location each year. The first of this series focuses on conversations between four local Chattanooga artists and four artists from Sister City Giv’atayim, Israel.

Highlighting powerful visions of hope that artists offer in times of turmoil, the project resulted in a video and art installation. The video will open at JFCG’s Jewish Cultural Center (5461 North Terrace Road, Chattanooga, 37411) on Thursday, March 9 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. and be screened throughout the month. The installation, which has been on display at the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport since December 15, 2022, will open on the 3rd floor at CPL’s Downtown Library on Friday, March 10 from 4:00-6:00 p.m.

Both events are free and open to the public. JFGC will screen the video through March 31, and CPL will have the installation on display for free during normal business hours until April 29, 2023.
