Community Connection

Anna Callahan is a community-based artist who focuses on creating art in public spaces.  Her work evolves from informal interviews she has with strangers that she encounters in a community—such as a university, library, and city transit system.  The conversations are centered around a particular topic respective to those public spaces.  She records all conversations and creates visual and aural installations, which includes printed materials and listening stations to invite people to listen to someone whom they would otherwise never meet.
