in less than two weeks, i’m going to start on my first major piece for a public institution.
this is scary and amazing at the same time.
here is where i’m going to be installing my piece, in the carousel room at Please Touch Museum here in Philadelphia. i’m going to be filling this entire archway (the painting will be moved). it’s about 14 feet high. this used to be an exterior wall at Memorial Hall (more history on Memorial Hall here), and there was a room added to house the carousel when it was acquired by the Museum. i can’t imagine a better place for my work.
