Hi beautiful ones,
Just a quick note to let you know that signups are now live for the second phase of my yoga photo project which will be happening this summer.
I'd love if you could share this with your Philly contacts.
All the info is at:
The folks at Gaiam have generously stepped up to sponsor the project, so I don't even need to do a kickstarter to make it happen!
Wherever this finds you, I hope that you can take a moment for a breath, and find some beauty around the next corner.
PS did you mark your calendar for the July 20 reception at NMAJH?
Hi there beautiful ones, and happy Friday!
I've got an invitation for you: sometime between now and Aug 21, I'd love for you to check out the series of installations that I've installed at the National Museum of American Jewish History.
If you're free & able to make it in person on Wed July 20 (6pm), there'll be a special reception that I'd love to have you at. [RSVP here]
There's a couple different facets with this residency, but one of the big ones basically accomplished the goal of this Kickstarter project that we never got funded... I held a series of community portrait sessions at various partner sites across the city, and have brought all of those beautiful faces together into a pretty cool installation.
I'm so grateful to NMAJH for this opportunity... and also to those of you who've jumped onboard as monthly sustainers (a far more reliable way for me to fund my work than kickstarter campaigns... ) – and to all of you for your encouragement and support.
With gratitude & best wishes for you all,
PS Here's the backside of the postcard for more on the installations:
PPS – PRESS OUTREACH:If you have any contacts in press/media/blogging who might be interested in this thing, here's the press release.
Hi beautiful ones,
While our 'Everyone is Photogenic' project didn't get funded, I'm still finding ways to weave that philosophy into subsequent work, including my current artist residency at the National Museum of American Jewish History.
Over the next two weeks, I'll be hosting a series of community portrait & story gathering sessions, both at the museum and at partner sites around the city.
I'd love to have you participate, and/or share this invite with anyone who'd be interested. We're collecting stories of migration/displacement/immigration, with the very broad understanding that anyone qualifies because we've all come from somewhere if you go back enough in our family's history.
This project will be one facet of my residency there – there'll be a couple other different installations (more on that later) so I hope you'll be able to stop by the museum sometime this summer to check it out. (Installations will be up June 21 – mid August, with a special event on July 20th)
PS special thanks to Jessi Melcer at NMAJH for the above image. Every once in a while, it's fun to be on the other side of the lens.
