I have some photos and video to share that I will be sending out in the coming days.
The sign will be in Hartford Connecticut in May and Santa Fe New Mexico in June and July. I was recently able to add a stop at the San Diego Museum of Art in August before the sign goes to Charlie James Gallery in Los Angeles in September.
Oct 2012-Spring 2013 is open! Right now we've got a gap in locations starting around October through the spring of 2013. If anyone has some ideas of where the sign can go, please get in touch.
I wanted to mention a few things that aren't 100% confirmed yet but exciting.
A museum-to-be-named-later is interested in showing the sign between 2013 and 2014.
A festival in Europe may make a 2nd version of the sign that could be available to tour over there. This is the second organization I've talked to about this possibility so who knows what will happen.
The deCordova Biennial was reviewed on GWARLiNGO
This is an extended interview I did for the ExtraEnvironmentalist Podcast that includes discussion about the sign. I haven't listened to it yet so let me know how it is!
As you know, in order to save on shipping and the time spent delivering rewards I'm waiting til everything is ready. One thing we're waiting on is the catalog. All the materials are in and it's in production. When I know more I will pass it on to you.
More soon & thanks!
