Going into the INTERSECTION exhibition for Massillon Museum, I knew it was going to be lots of hard work. Even before I conceived of doing the Kickstarter to help me get through it all, I had already put in months of work on developing the show and all the things that revolve around it.
But where so much of that work was digitally (and brain) based, things have moved head on into the physical plane now! I feel like the show is manifesting, bit by bit, right before my eyes. And never more-so than when I went to pick up the proofs for the two large pieces I made–with the help of my Kickstarter supporters–specifically for this show.
As they say, a picture is worth 1,000 words… so rather than write about it, I’m going to show you. In video.
A huge thanks goes out to my collaborator, Michael Harren. I love his music for this video!
The last I updated you here, my Kickstarter campaign was under way. If you didn’t already see the news, it was a phenomenal success. The project reached 100% funding before it was even halfway through. I’m so thankful for all of my fans and supporters who helped make it happen.
As part of the campaign I posted several videos featuring the Kickstarter rewards. I thought I would gather a few of those here.
The first video shows my We Are One People artist’s multiple. This is a new work I created earlier in 2013 but I debuted it as part of the INTERSECTION Kickstarter campaign. This limited edition boxed set contains my article “We Are One People” (originally published in Georgia Backroads) on a set of 12 cards accompanied by a set of 12 mounted digital chromogenic prints. This multiple is super deluxe and high end. See what it’s like in the video:
I am pleased to announce that in March 2014 I will mount my debut solo museum exhibition. Massillon Museum in Massillon, Ohio will be hosting INTERSECTION, a show focused around my southern photography. This exhibition is a game changer in my career as an artist. But putting on a museum quality exhibition is an expensive undertaking and I need all the help I can get to successfully pull it off. This is a big step as an artist and I’m reaching out to art fans and supporters, friends and family, and fellow creatives to help make it all possible.
