You can get an inside and underneath view of installation art with a free tour of Install It 3 – above and below at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 16.

The installation art exhibition, on view through May 24, is located in the Vista Greenway/former train tunnel at the intersection of Lincoln and Lady streets. The tour will be given by exhibition curator Jeffrey Day, several of the participating artists, a historian and community members. Artists Michaela Pilar Brown, Bri Kinard, Amanda Ladymon, Kara Gunter,   Kimberly Bookman and Wendell G. Brown (who did the piece at Zion Baptist last year) have created works that touch on the history of Washington Street and the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement. The artists have created works specially that include photography, wax, plaster, paper, earth and grass.

The exhibition, sponsored by the Congaree Vista Guild and part of the annual art event Artista Vista, is open daily from dawn to dark.
