There’s a new art installation Chattanoogans can check out during their walks through downtown. Thanks to the Institute of Contemporary Art Chattanooga + UTC, three sculptures from Brooklyn-based artist Adam Parker Smith are currently on display on the campus grounds.

From the “Sarcophagi” series, the sculptures appear as sub-zero sleeping bags standing upright on marble bases. Smith created the sculptures in 2021 in response to “the world’s huge loss from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Want to see the sculptures for yourself? Folks can check out the installation 24 hours a day, seven days a week for free on the campus grounds across from the University Center on Vine Street.
