I ended up driving to the Soap Factory in Minneapolis MN to install my “Undercurrent” piece and it was well worth it. There were 10 artists, all good friends from New Orleans, with 12,000 square feet of space. It was a lot of work but the end result was great to see! I took pictures with my friend Courtney Egan’s camera cause she has this awesome D90 that everybody had to try out! I will post them as soon as I get those in… I am really grateful to Jayme McLellan for inviting me to be part of the show. She did a great job selecting the artists so I really felt the need to put my ‘best’ foot forward. It was no pressure though, I just felt the need to do the best possible job.
The people at the Soap Factory were more than helpful. They totally exceeded my expectations. They have a great system going. There were many volunteers that helped install. Peter helped with my installation of the projectors. Without the help it would have taken me another week to install! Ben Heywood was kind enough to have me at his house even when I rolled in late. The whole staff is stellar and I am grateful I got the chance to work with them!!
Not only did they have the show, they also had documentary video artists interviewing everyone. They had a cut ready by the opening. They also had someone taking interviews for their podcast on iTunes. Its not posted yet but will be soon.
It was a great experience and I made some new friends on this trip! Thanks for everything!!
