Somewhere in Dayton, Kentucky.
They’re still doing test runs, but it gets realer every day.
Joseph and Yaoyue take a bow at his final oboe recital at CCM.
The third day of the Fellowship and we toured around the city, meeting mentors and other folks that will be helpful along our journey. First stop? Meeting the FotoFocus team at Lightborne to learn all about their approach and the upcoming Biennial in October. (Which I super enjoyed in ’14… Bonus? John Waters!)
Touring Cincinnati Community Toolbank followed with the inspiring Kat Pepmeyer (above). Her organization rents tools at incredibly reasonable prices to individuals and group projects that improve communities. Many hands make light work, indeed.
Spotted this awesome Phoenix logo on the way to the next stop:
“Wigs” Lorna Simpson
“Untitled” Rodney McMillan. This is a carpet pulled from an apartment and all the scuffs and marks over the years remain. At first I wasn’t sold on this piece, but after Brian described art as intentional marks on a canvas, it felt more than appropriate.
“Sleep” Kinhinde Wiley
“Bird on Money” Jean-Michel Basquiat
(I thought the signage for the exhibition was artwork.)
Ended our day visiting David Dreith at Building Value back in my neck of the woods.
My fellow Fellowshipmate, Brandon Black, takes a wonderfully analog and visual approach to thinking through his upcoming project.
We spent the first day thinking about schedule, what we hope to accomplish and how to tackle things.
Bonus? Flowers from Tom & Wendy wishing me luck:
The weather was pitch perfect for the Reds 2016 Opening Day Parade. Started off at the Globe Building overlooking Findlay Market to watch all the folks get lined up and ready. (From Wikipedia, “In Cincinnati, Ohio, home of the sport’s first professional team, the annual Findlay Market Parade marks an official city holiday with young and old alike taking the day off to cheer on the Reds.”)
