BRIC: Artist in the studio exhibition
Here's the cover of the Forbes Special Philanthropy issue (at your newsstand now). The photo shoot took place during the Philanthropy Summit on Education at the New York Public Library. I created the set design, which included preliminary sketches and the acquisition of 250-some-odd books. Pre-production fabrication and configuration of the flats and books was done in my studio. The panels were designed to travel flat with space in between as the open book pages were quite fragile. Installation was done the day before the shoot as it took all day to set up and the final touches of taping down the top pages was a bit involved.
One of my "au naturel" drawings is in a group show curated by Bill Carroll. Stop by and check out the show if your in the Park Slope neighborhood.
Sunday, 4:30pm show at BRIC. Went and saw Rodney King, a performance piece created and performed by Roger Guenveur Smith. So incredibly powerful. His vibrant and painful monologue ran non-stop as he masterfully expressed his interpretation of Rodney King's life.
