My ‘Guest Artist’ calendar of events continues to evolve, and I am realizing I can’t do everything I want to do, and visit with everyone that I want to share ideas with, just during this 7 weeks. The ‘guest artist’ idea came out of having this fantastic space available to me, and a platform to mess with ideas, but now I am seeing, it can and should and will continue beyond the limited time period of my residency at The Project Room. It takes away my sense of urgency when contacting people – (“I have this idea I want to develop with you, let’s make it happen NOW!!”) – to letting things develop as they need to. But despite that shift in thinking, I’m going to do as much, and share as much with whomever chooses to join in for the next month! So, I have a bevy of Calendar updates, some coming up very soon! And there will continue to be updates…!
