Wonderful collages by participants of a collage workshop.
Finally we got all the prints in and tucked into the grooves. This was probably the most challenging installation, physically and technically, that I have ever done. The wind and the heat truly put my abilities to the test.
Luke, my installation assistant, “testing” the art.
It was too hot to work on the site, so I trimmed the top dome inside using garden edging as my guide for the large semi-circle.
Picking up prints from Alphagraphics in Overland Park, KS. Last print coming out and color tests on the table.
Emily Sloan-Evans helped brainstorm on my installation technique.
My “workstation” – it was brutally hot with no shade.
Made some new friends: Rod from the Planning Department in City Hall.
At the end of Day 1 I only had these panels done, thanks to Chris who came to my rescue at 6:30 PM. The wind was so crazy that everything was blowing away and I could not hold down a single print. I know it looks very peaceful, but I had to lie down on a print so that it would not catch wind under it.
Lead by Porter Arneill and curator James Martin and nice group of local art enthusiasts endured the incredible heat and spent a better part of the evening looking at the works included in this year’s Lawrence Outdoor sculpture exhibition.
This is the top of the one panel that was already taken in the first week or two of the exhibition.
To make an authentic image of a spilled ice cream cone for the Hopscotch square, I picked up a box of waffle cones and a gallon of strawberry ice cream from the local store, and on a nice warm day, it melted pretty quickly in my driveway. However, I got the image I needed. And my son got to enjoy ice cream cones for days.
