ArtSpace Activation

The Atlas lobby will be filled with compelling art installations that will inspire you to think differently and question perceptions and understandings of elements that are a part of our everyday lives.

Featured installations for the festival include:


Salvatore Pirrone

Meet the Artist: Sat, Feb 24 | 2-4pm; Sun, Mar 4 | 2:30-4:30pm
A Quiet Place is an installation dedicated to the work and memory of American composer, Leonard Bernstein. Inspired by Bernstein’s varied lyrical style and socially motivated themes, Pirrone uses sculpture and drawing to build an installation intended for people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. This work overlaps Bernstein’s iconic imagery like the chain link fence in West Side Story with the Edenic garden from Candide to build a series of narratives both foreign and familiar. A Quiet Place looks to foster a sense of optimism and community through the lens of perhaps our most influential American composer.


Sat, Feb 24 | 10am-12pm;  Sat, Mar 3 | 10am-12pm

Inspired by Leonard Bernstein’s social narrative in his music, during Family Fun Days, we will Make Our Garden Grow. People of all ages can stop by our Creation Station and build a paper flower for our community art installation.
