The tiny city of York, Alabama, is located a three hour drive west of Montgomery, near the Mississippi border. There, artist Matthew Mazzotta
has created a project with the Coleman Center for the Arts
, a local organization, that's part kinetic sculpture, part architecture, and part public outdoor theater. It's called Open House
and it seeks to provide York's 3,000 residents with much-needed public space. What looks to be a typical gabled house
unfolds to become a 100-seat outdoor arena.
