Rite of Spring Garden

In Conjunction with the Weatherspoon Art Museum and the UNCG School of Art Faculty Biennial

In this weekly performance, a tricked-out van with a high-end, professionally installed audio sound system cruises up and down Spring Garden Street emanating remixed variations Igor Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring.

Spring Garden is a public street that dissects the heart of UNCG's campus. This sound work passes through every Thursday precisely from 11:45-Noon - a time that hundreds of students are moving through campus to get from one class to another.
