Beauty of Life opens next Thursday!
See all those lovely black X's on my huge checklist? I'm coming down the real homestretch here with my Beauty of Life installation--late last night I finally completed all 768 of the pieces that will make up the repeating sections. Wanna see?
Portland Building. I have slightly adjusted the official opening date for this show to Thursday, October 14, 2010, so I hope that won't affect travel plans for any of you who are coming from out of town. Please note that there is no formal opening reception for this installation, but it will be on display through November 14th during the building operating hours Monday-Friday 7am-6pm.
I have a new team member to introduce to you--Tura Sugden, who soldered all 1600 of my pin findings, plus another 50 wires for two of my smaller designs. I met Tura through Velvet da Vinci initially, and she really came through for me in getting this massive part of the project done. (This picture is of Tura processing the hundreds of pounds of honey from her father's bees last year!!)
