Last night was the opening of Identity Operation! The four other artists and I were so incredibly nervous and anxious for the response to our work. The turn out was incredible! (We, all amateur party planners, ran out of food in about 30 minutes) Thank you so much for all your support, I had so many kind comments about how lovely the prints were, the surprising scale, and just how powerful they thought the piece was!
I wanted to share some images (I'll post some higher quality install shots when I get around to accomplishing that)
Here's the title wall!
And here's a little hint at an installation view! You can get a sense of scale and clarity!
And a quick shout out to my kind friends who came to support me at the opening!
The show is open until this Friday at the Guggenheim Gallery - gallery hours are 12 PM - 5 PM Monday through Friday on the corner of Palm and Center in Orange, CA.
As of April 11, 2012 (approx. 10:00 PM) The Cry Project has been 100% funded! After a surprising rush of donations, and an incredibly weird amount of shaking and surprise on my part, I can happily announce that we're FUNDED!
Any additional funding that comes in at the end of this campaign will cover the cost of materials and film processing (which has been quite a bit out of pocket), so thank you for your continued donations.
I'm so grateful for all of your help, and I cannot express how honestly thrilled and just shocked I am to have such great support.
I will continue to post updates and announcements!
This is the show announcement card for the group student show at Chapman University that The Cry Project will premiere at. If you've donated, you're invited to the opening...check out the event HERE!
Thanks again for all your help. I'm just so sosooso humbled by this whole experience.
