Carolyn Carr: Tomorrow is Another Day

A participating Flux Projects Work of Art

FLUX is a one-night public art celebration presented by Flux Projects in the streets, on the building and in the spaces of the Castleberry Hill Art District. The event includes large and small-scale projections, performance, multimedia projects, and public interactions.

Tomorrow is Another Day was conceived and designed by Artist Carolyn Carr and executed by atraditional sign painting company, Signs for Dimes. Carr employed the artists of Signs for Dimes to hand paint the text, Tomorrow is Another Day, which will cover almost all of the facade of the two story building, Stable 1897, located in Castleberry Hill.

Tomorrow is Another Day is the last line spoken in the epic film, Gone With the Wind. This text was chosen by Carr for these words, in the context of past and present conditions, beg questions about contemporary life while simultaneously acting to promote optimism in a complex social and political urban arena. This work is part of a larger body of work that examines personal and social realities via a non-linear narrative.
Carr’s upcoming exhibitions will be in November 2010 at Gavlak Gallery,, New York City and January at the Gavlak Gallery, Palm Beach.
Signs For Dimes,, established in March 2010, works in the time honored tradition of custom, hand painted advertisement, to bring more color and creative aspects to the urban landscape. The signs for Dimes Team includes Adam McNeil, William Mitchell and Melanie Wade.
