Mobilizing Our Community

Students from Martinsville City Public Schools, Henry County Public Schools, Carlisle School, and homeschool students participated in Mobilizing Our Community, a mobile-making project presented by Piedmont Arts.

Artist Kevin Reese worked with local students to create 49 large-scale, dynamic mobiles—28 of which have been permanently placed in local schools and businesses that provided support for the program. Other mobiles have been purchased by local residents to be displayed in their homes.

Mobiles on view to the public can be found at the following locations:


Mobiles installed in non-public facilities are located at The Lester Group offices, Hooker Furniture's Customer Service Center, Chick-fil-A, RTI International Metals, and private residences.
