Because by TD Jakes, this brings my joy.
Today was my 1st official day of set-up in my exhibition space. My primary goal was to wallpaper the removable wall and cover my large wall with 6 yards of fabric I bought at Mood yesterday. When I got to my space to hang the wallpaper, I noticed the printed pieces were still too small. The prints I spent over $50 on were a waste. Luckily, Staples didn’t have a line, so I printed in B&W, and it actually looks pretty damn good. Should have done it from the beginning, I have no idea what I was thinking.
Later in the day my friend Theresa came by to help me hang all the fabric. It’s insane how much time and money both of us spent just COVERING our walls. This has nothing to do with our projects, but we’ve invested so much time prepping our walls. In the time we did that, another classmate hung his entire show. Oh well, good things from to thosethat face adversity, I like to think. Note to self, always pick exhibition spaces with finished walls. Here’s some pictures from the day.
Oh, and tomorrow I get to see Debbie Millman speak at Pratt! Can’t wait for that!!
