“Interactive theater” generally means performers mingling with the audience, breaking the fourth wall. But up at Kennesaw State University, the theater department is working on a different kind of interactivity.

They’re calling it the Ipomoea Project (pronounced "eye-po-mo-EE-ah").

Andy Davis, the man picked to sculpt a statue of Martin Luther King Jr., for the Georgia Capitol, died Sunday night.

Davis, 53, was hospitalized after he was struck by a suspected drunk driver Saturday morning.

Davis' family issued this statement on Sunday morning: "One thing that we know, is that he would want everyone to think on his life works, his wild, loving Heart, and his Heroism that was so apparent in his barefooted steps. We love you, and thank you for your support and love."
