Sky Stage transforms a boarded building shell in Frederick, MD’s downtown historic district into an interactive building-scale public art work. This pre-Revolutionary War building was damaged by a major fire in 2010 and lost its roof. In September 2016, the plywood on the doors and windows were removed to reveal Sky Stage, a center for free arts and culture. The open-air theater seats an audience of 140 people among trees. The centerpiece of Sky Stage is a two-story sculpture with ribbons of drought-resistant plants that twist and wind through a wooden lattice and the building’s doors and windows. Green roof technology has been modified to support the spiraling plants. Rainwater is collected from an adjacent roof and stored in a cistern to irrigate the plants and trees. Working with the local community, Sky Stage offers drama, music, children’s story time, art classes, dance, literature, film, pop-up gallery shows, and yoga.
