October 2018, Atlanta GA
The BuHi Lights will create a temporary light installation in the Buford Highway corridor to accomplish the following objectives:
- encourage play in unexpected everyday spaces
- reflect the area's cultural diversity
- create a safer and more playful and people-friendly environment
- encourage residents and visitors to explore new places
The BuHi Lights was originally a recommendation in the Buford Highway Master Plan, a Livable Centers Initiative study sponsored by the Atlanta Regional Commission with the Cities of Chamblee and Doraville and adopted by the Cities in 2017, and was inspired by the cloth and paper lanterns currently displayed in local shopping centers.

Popps Emporium Tool Share Program and Back 40
November 2018, Hamtramk/Detroit MI
Popps Packing is an artist-run, neighborhood-based nonprofit organization founded in 2009 by husband and wife artists, Faina Lerman and Graem Whyte. Nestled on the border of the Detroit/Hamtramk line for nearly a decade, this community art space has provided gallery exhibitions, a robust, international residency program, and thoughtful public programming of all kinds.
Through Detroit land bank acquisitions and stellar vision, Whyte and Lerman are developing neighboring properties at the border to further serve their community in non-traditional ways.
The Emporium expands on the existing programming of Popps Packing through additional residency space, a community gallery, a tool lending library, a design library, and will serve as a community resource for the sharing of goods, skills, and experiences while offering a platform for community engagement, creating new connections and neighborly good will.
Popps Emporium "rebirth" began in 2012, slowly developing through the artistry of Graem Whyte and multiple residency artists. The emporium will open this November, 2018.
