As signs of spring pop up in Chapel Hill, another unusual set of signs have appeared on Franklin Street.
Arizona-based artist Gregory Sale brought his multimedia exhibit “Love for Love” to the streets of Chapel Hill last week.
Sale said his art, which features white, circular signs with pieces of poetry written on them, are meant to remind residents about feelings of love and intimacy.
“The campaign is about love in the community,” Sale said. “Remind each of us of feelings of love.”
Sale’s project was commissioned by the Ackland Art Museum to explore how love can be expressed through beauty, emotion, humor and texts.
Sale’s work is part of the Ackland Museum’s first major exhibition this year, More Love, which features 48 works of art by 33 emerging and established contemporary artists.
