The day before the election, I was giving my own version of a stump speech, detailing my origins as an artist, from my early to present work, and touched on my upcoming projects.
Muchos thanks to fellow artist and Inspiration Grant winner Angelica Sandoval for letting me use the awesome Kickstarter Shout-Out she made for me as the title slide of my presentation (Her Kickster was successful too! You can see her installation now in the windows of BNIM in downtown KC). Sooo much better than plain ol’ text. I love it.
I was able to cover my early work, including this piece In the Eye of the Beholder.
Of course, I went over the process of making my current work and my studies at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center.
I aim to please, so I also brought finished work as well as many random samples and experiments from the studio.
Thanks to Leslie at the Kauffman Foundation for hosting me and to the Metro Arts Council for running the Now Showing Program! I enjoy sharing my work and hope to do so again. Yay for public speaking!
