Intersection


Video: Tristan Kim | Music: Will Robinson

To the Judge Realty team and all involved, the Intersection Block Party represented more than just a celebration of hard work and stunning art – it was a chance for the community to come together in a place where art can thrive. Lori Judge has made it her goal to allow Judge Realty to always be a place of opportunity for artists to express themselves and grow, involving the community and making art as public and accessible as possible. Intersection was nothing short of a behemoth effort representative of Savannah’s love of public art, involving many moving parts and hard working tastemakers, art lovers, and savvy engineers. Lori Judge and her team endlessly thank artists Will Penny, Liz Winnel, Britt Spencer and Matt King, Susan Laney of Laney Contemporary, structural engineer Cody Tharpe and contractor Paul Miller, Big Bon Pizza, The Telfair Museums and Stephanie Raines for spearheading their new initiative #art912, and of course, W Projects, and the willingness to expand the definition of public art by the Historic Board of Savannah, without whom Intersection would still be just an idea. Intersection, Judge’s Third Annual Public Art Project, saw more positive feedback and community support than any before, and in the hope that we can continue to bring amazing works to the forefront of community visibility, we thank all who support us in our efforts.

Intersection by Will Penny

Judge Realty in Savannah, Georgia

Judge Realty proudly hosts local artist Will Penny as the third annual public art project on the prominent facade of 347 Abercorn Street. Entitled Intersection, Penny will use manipulated light and motion graphics each night from 7-9 PM starting December 8 and running through December 28th. On December 8th, Judge Realty is hosting a block party in front of the office to celebrate the installation and public art in Savannah.Judge Realty in Savannah, Georgia

Intersection, a light installation, will employ three mounted projectors incorporating a series of animations including light and form patterns and two-dimensional abstract designs.

Lori Judge, founder and C.E.O. of Judge Realty, said, “I have been a fan and collector of Will Penny for many years. When I was introduced to his large-scale work I knew we needed to incorporate it into Judge Public Art Projects. I am excited to see the transformation of the facade of Judge Realty into one of his evolving masterpieces.”

Of the name Intersection, Penny said, “It’s really about the intersection of public space and art, it’s about how we could engage the space itself and ask people passing by on the street to take a second to pause, looking at themselves against the scale of it- slowing down, stopping, meditating. It’s a slight homage to the area we all work and live in, then taking it and adding a new psychological layer.”Judge Realty in Savannah, Georgia

Penny also said, “I try to avoid instances of ‘statement,’ but Intersection is also about Judge’s own ideas for the Art Collection, the three e’s: energy, economy, environment. Those are all very important to me as well, so the ‘intersection’ is also about the crossover of Lori’s ideas and my own.”

Intersection also represents a shift in the local perception of what public art can mean. “Right now, the most common recognized form of public art in the city are murals and memorial structures. I want to help expand the dimensional understanding and parameters of what public art can be. I want Judge Realty’s office to be a blank canvas, a means of expression, a place for artists to grow, and something the community can experience together,” said Judge.

In addition to promoting public art, Judge Realty is also using Intersection as an opportunity to support Telfair’s #art912 with a block party on Thursday December 8th. #art912 is a new Telfair Museums initiative dedicated to raising the visibility and promoting the vitality of artists living and working in Savannah through exhibition opportunities, public programs, and outreach.

Please stop by Judge Realty at 347 Abercorn Street on Thursday December 8th from 7-10PM for the block party or throughout the month of December from 7-9PM to see Intersection.
