What does home mean to you? That’s the question behind a new interactive exhibit at theHigh Museum in Atlanta
On the piazza, or open plaza, outside of the High a team of museum employees and volunteers bolted together the frames of what look like giant, red Monopoly houses without walls.
The 40 structures make up the High Museum’s Mi Casa, Your Casa installation—the brain child of Mexican designers Hector Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena.
“They conceived it as a blank canvas. I mean, the idea is, it’s 40 houses, but the intention is to make it a home,” said Sarah Schleuning, the curator of decorative arts and design for the High Museum.
She said the idea was to “activate” the space between the museum and the other buildings on the Woodruff Arts Center campus.
