It was maybe the second or third week of June when I proclaimed, "This summer is going to go by baffingly fast." Here I am three weeks into July with now 24 new portraits under my belt. The first 10 were for the Razzle Dazzle Series, which debuted last weekend. The other 14 are another round of wine stain portraits on wood that are specially made for my dear friend's project, ReArrange.
ReArrange is a dance installation and performance for audiences of all ages in an empty two story house on Governor's Island, just South of Manhattan. We're painting the rooms, building sets, and creating an immersive experience of art and dance - all around the theme of arranging/re-arranging stuff/life/memories/history/stories/and more.
We are so excited that this performance is free and open to the public, but that makes our need to fundraise that much greater. We are committed to providing compensation to our collaborating artists - each of whom will be spending 10-20 hours rehearsing, on top of 8 hours of performing. Yes, 8 hours of performing - for free!
