We have been busy in pre-production: building structures, painting, and preparing our visitor participation form for our Artist Residency.
Chris has spent many long days in his studio constructing the gift shop display cases, postcard racks, and information booth with an LED ticker. Visitors will be able to input their answer to the question, “What is your favorite experience at the de Young?” and the answers will appear on an LED ticker the next day for future visitors to see.
Visitors will also be asked to fill out this prompt card about their favorite artwork in the de Young.
The forms will be attached to a large, abstracted wall map of the de Young galleries and collections to share with the public. In addition, quotes from the prompt cards will be used to create personalized walking tours, postcards, and artist led tours. A very special thanks to Phil Spitler for helping in the production of the map, and the coding of the computer tablet interface.
Victoria will be creating abstract icons of the publicly selected artworks at the de Young for postcards and posters in the Kimball Education Gallery.
Please come and be a part of our residency project! We need your voice to make it happen.
