Video Vault: “What Lifts You”

Say goodbye to Kelsey Montague’s public art project with a video about the artist’s process and the impact of social media on her work.

To send off our public art project with Kelsey Montague, we produced a short video with filmmaker Mike Lancaster that looks at the artist’s “What Lifts You” mural here in New Orleans. Thanks to everyone who came out and brought their joy to the project. We’re sad to see the wings go and can’t wait to see Montague’s art continue to pop up around the world.

Listen to the artist talk about her process and the ways social media has allowed viewers to interact with and transform her work. And check if your snaps with the wings made the video!

Editor's Note

Kelsey Montague’s “What Lifts You” was on view August 1 - October 31, 2015, at 750 Carondelet Street in New Orleans.
