Matchstick Wall St Installation at CSUN w Alex Schaefer
Today I went to Cal State University Northridge at noon and helped set up the installation with Edie and Jim and a bunch of the students who contributed to the piece. It really is amazing! The students helped us transport the sculpture to the gallery and then Edie and I, with the help of Jim with the ladders and lighting (I do not like ladders!) got the whole thing together! This has been a year long project for Edie and the students in her Art Education classes over two semesters, and it's all gonna go up in flames at the show closing, with the blessing of the campus fire department! aahhahahahha so great! Here's a bunch of shots of the installation and a video walk-thru. It's open to the public starting Sept 22 and will be burned as a performance on Oct 13 beginning at 4pm and culminating at 7pm! I'll be giving a talk Sept 27 at 2pm about painting, protest, and the economy. Call the CSUN gallery office at 818 677 2156 for information, hours and location.
