Jamie Blackburn Lives in a Window at the Tapp’s Art Center Project in Columbia, SC

Saturday, January 22nd, 2011


I got a call the other day from Jamie Blackburn who is living in the window of the Tapp’s Art Center Project in Columbia, SC, at the corner of Main and Blanding. Central South Carolina Habitat for Humanity and their ReStore have collaborated with local artist, Jamie Blackburn, the City of Columbia, and the Tapp’s Art Center to present “Art4Habitat.” So from Jan. 6 through Feb. 4, the next First Thursday on Main, Blackburn will be working and living in his mixed, multi-media arts studio, in the Tapp’s building at 1644 Main Street.

During his stay in the window, Blackburn will also introduce “Processor” the Art Droid. “Processor” is the first of many “art characters” Blackburn will be performing. The Art Droid will do a painting under the black lights in a multi-media art show.

Working in a crazy mix of visual and media arts, drama and music, Blackburn will attract attention and raise awareness for Habitat for Humanity and The Tapp’s Art Center Project.

Blackburn hopes his “Art4Habitat” foundation will raise awareness and money. Proceeds from his art exhibition will benefit Habitat for Humanity and the Tapp’s Art Center Project.

The exhibit will run through Feb. 28, 2011.
