Oliver Twist sure romanticized petty theft. Too bad your cherub-faced street urchin days are behind you.
Get your pickpocket on with Pockets, Art House Co-Op’s new roving public art show.
Artist Steven Peterman believes participants can let go of emotional baggage by emptying bags, purses, and pockets in the name of art. Show up at a show-partnered art night and place your stuff in jars premarked to receive items like matches, cigarettes, wrappers, and receipts.
The exhibit is ongoing, and Peterman plans to fill all twenty gallon-size glass jars before taking his fascinating social experiment on the road.
See? Some sums are greater than their parts.
Next public art collection at SCAD Open Studio Night, November 13, 7 p.m., at 1600 Peachtree Street, Midtown (404-253-2740). For information and mail participation instructions, go to pocketsandpockets.com.
