Is Your Rebellion Sitting Still?, a project by artist Maria Cameron, aims to transform public spaces in Rochester, MN into spaces of contemplation, self-reflection, and conversation. By installing a series of large-scale thought bubbles on buildings, and in community spaces that are considered works in progress, this project highlights the present flux the city of Rochester is currently in. Each thought bubble contains a direct question, each question seeks to provoke dialogue about renovation and renewal, inviting conversation about the meditative and often healing act of finding art in the every day. The viewer is given the opportunity to focus on some of the complicated questions that come with living, thriving, hurting, and healing.
On August 19th at 10am the artist invites the public to join her on a walking tour of all of the installation locations of Is Your Rebellion Sitting Still?, starting at 14 4th St SW, Rochester, MN 55902.
