Public artwork of abstract orange shapes attached to a chain link fence by Jerstin Crosby

Four Heads For Bragg Street

A SEEK project by Jerstin Crosby with support from Raleigh Arts

Four Heads For Bragg Street is a site-specific installation along the chain-link fence at Bragg Street Park facing Person Street. The artist was drawn to this location because of its diminutive presence along a heavily trafficked street in a neighborhood experiencing tremendous transformation. 

The public artwork references the ancient Greek city of Delphi, thought to be the center of the Greek universe, home to a civic sports complex and all-knowing oracle that could see the future. This temporary public artwork positions the public park as a centerpiece in the shared narrative of its neighborhood, and a place where their future will unfold.
