Miriam and Jacob Hodesh, otherwise known as NewMoonofSavannah, freakin’ blow my mind with their creative activism/community building/general awesomeness. They provide biodiesel fuel for the city’s entire fleet of diesel vehicles, they host the monthly hipster flea market Savannah Bazaar and helped organize this year’s Jewish Film Festival, yet they STILL cram more into the hours the rest of use to drink beer and gaze at our navels.
Their latest venture is the redeSIGN Art Project, on display at 312 W. Broughton through Friday. Jake and Miriam collected a bunch of discarded street signs from the City of Savannah, contacted local artists and rented a gallery to display it all. The result:
Beautiful, recycled chaos. My only regret is that no one did anything snarky with one of those “Slow Children At Play” signs.
