Sometimes, projects take a long time to incubate. You walk through the process of envisioning them, and then there is bureaucracy and engineering and architecture to consider. Eventually, some fabrication happens, you see the colors with your own eyes, the installation unfolds. Then, it is time to begin imagining again.
When you are having trouble picturing the next step, I highly recommend taking a little person with you to investigate the possibilities. .
to the moment my little girl caught a glimpse of the community art creation I helped dream up in a neighboring park. She said, “Mama, did you help make this? These look like rainbows!”
I have been having trouble getting inspired in 2019, but it is time to begin working again on adding the functionality to the Info-Hub in Duncan Park. The sculptural elements of this piece are there to be enjoyed—go check them out!—but posting surfaces and seating are needed to complete the project. Perhaps this look of wonderment on this kid’s face will help me get things started.
I’m excited to announce that the MLK Neighborhood Association and NoLi CDC have received Neighborhood Action Match funding from the city to add functionality to this sculptural, usable posting structure.
Stay tuned for more updates!
