Students in Associate Professor of Art Joel Tauber’s “Filmmaking and Video Art” class will project video content onto the newly-redeveloped Bailey Power Plant with the hopes of prompting community conversation and progress. In telling the stories of local places and local people, students hope their public art display will bring together the diverse communities of Winston-Salem.

Media and the public are invited to attend the event and a reception in Bailey Park tonight, Wednesday, Feb. 27 from 7 to 9 p.m. Students will be present to discuss their projects and inspiration.

In the event of rain on Wednesday, the event will be held on Thursday, Feb. 28 from 7 to 9 p.m. in Bailey Park.

Student filmmakers project their films onto the wall of Bailey Power Plant in downtown Winston-Salem.
