“Take A Seat” event at the University Museum of Contemporary Art

Forty of us—including Sean Greene and Sally Curcio and Amy Johnquest—were invited to transform these chairs into sculptures to celebrate the University Museum of Contemporary Art. They will be on display at the museum in the “Take A Seat” exhibit, running from January 28th to February 28th. The opening reception is Wednesday, January 27th, and there will be a fundraising party on February 28th, with a silent auction of the chairs to benefit the UMCA.

Below are images of my chair, which features patterns etched, burnt, and painted into its surface, along with tiny lightbulbs. It is entitled “The Moment Before the Stars Turned On.”
