Cultural Cross Ties is an art project created by Ann Law of Barking Legs Theater here in Chattanooga.

The experimental partnership links artists in this city with artists in Chattanooga’s Sister Cities.

The first collaboration in the series focuses on conversations between Chattanooga artists with artists from our Sister City in Israel - and out of that collaboration: a video and an art installation.

The video premieres this evening - from 5 PM to 7 PM - at the Jewish Cultural Center, where it will be screened through March 31st.

Two art installation pieces will be shown starting on Friday - from 4 PM to 6 PM - at the downtown Chattanooga Public Library, where they will remain on display through April 29th.
