Art in Odd Places


Signal to noise ratio: It’s the proportion of useful, valuable information to worthless background static in any system. This year’s Art in Odd Places festival, happening Friday through Sunday, takes ‘Noise’ as its theme, but judging by past years, the festival promises to offer a high ratio of signal to noise: plenty of good work, very little rubbish.

Like a gallery without walls, this free festival takes over a stretch of Magnolia Avenue through Saturday. Art in Odd Places founder Ed Woodham believes that public spaces like sidewalks and parks should encourage “diverse social interactions and the unfettered exchange of ideas.” But instead most of us hurry through staring into our phones. This festival is meant to kick-start communication by presenting art and performance in surprising and unexpected places. So you may see giant hands bursting out of the ground and reaching for the sky. Or a …
