Threshold: the promised land will explore the space as a site for transformation. Threshold implies an opening for change, a boundary yet to be crossed, and the maximum or minimum point of change. The phrase “promised land” brings to mind hope and new beginnings, as well as reflection on local history. The artists will create work that examines themes around building, construction and future potential as well as the economy of exchange. In the early years of the city’s second century, Norman’s citizens seek to express the vibrancy of the community and to celebrate the diversity that makes it an amazing place to live. The exhibition will be accompanied by educational programming and creative performance by local musicians, performance artists, poets, and others. The intent of this installation is to transform the community of Norman through the vehicle of art, reflecting inclusivity and respect as core values of the city.
This weekend was a great experience, and I can't wait to share some photos from my finished installation at Plug Projects. The Plug crew was incredibly hospitable and kind, and they were great to work with. I was blown away by the talent of the other artists in the exhibition, and feel honored to show alongside them. Not to mention, we had a lot of fun while we were hanging out - great people!
If you are in the Kansas City area over the next 6 weeks, I encourage you to stop by the Plug Projects gallery to see all of the artwork in Rare Earth. I will work on processing my installation images and post them on Wednesday.
