“Gossamer” is the title of the piece I built on Hilton Head Island last week. It was created out of 15,000 feet of nylon cord, 2000 screw eyes and was hand painted with glow-in-the-dark paint. Photos soon to follow. There is opportunity to win prize money for this work. Please go to the attached link and vote for me!

Studio Visit Etiquette

One of the perks of being at an artist residency is the studio visit. Artists, gallerists, curators and sometimes the general public are invited into our studios to see what we’re working on. Best-case scenario, these visits result in sales or a show.

Yesterday we had a representative from Creative Time and The Kitchen visit our studios. All of us worked to make sure that our spaces were clean and presentable. And at the end of all the visits our visitors presented to us.

This experience always spurs a conversation about the visits: were they useful, did we learn anything, etc. However, this time we ended up discussing the etiquette of a studio visit. My fellow residents brought to my attention that it is considered polite to offer some kind of food or drink when a visitor travels to look at your work. It seems so obvious and yet I hadn’t thought of it. It immediately made me wonder what else I was missing and I decided to research the topic. This is what I discovered:

Open Call – Urban Public Art in NYC

Open Call - Urban Public Art in NYC

Art is integral to DOT’s goal of world class streets. Artists help to transform the landscape from ordinary to extraordinary with temporary, unexpected interventions – colorful murals, dynamic light projections, thought-provoking sculptures.

Public plazas, fences, barriers, footbridges, and sidewalks serve as canvases for temporary art in all five boroughs. DOT’s Urban Art initiatives rely on partnerships with community organizations and the creativity of artists to present site-responsive artwork. DOT Urban Art has presented over 100 inspiring projects since October 2008.
