It’s possible to understand Part 7 without having read parts 1-6, but it may be wise to take a moment and read them first, you choose. In case you haven’t been able to get out to one of the fifteen separate exhibitions we did during the summer (people do get busy), now you can see the ‘A’ frame portion of S50 on the blog. You’ll also get some insight into the thinking behind each piece in the exhibition. Before noon each day for the next 15 days, you will be able to see a new ‘A’ frame added onto the blog. Stay tuned!
“Coffee and Me” is what could be referred to as supplementary materials, but I think it deserves to be part of the exhibition itself. It sits in the middle of the exhibition because there are two ends to the show, if I put it near the “end”, that would technically be the “beginning” for some people as well. i did most of the design, then North Idaho College student Stephen Wright polished it up and made it look a lot cooler. Thanks to design professor Philippe Valle for making that happen.
This piece also serves as a bridge between the participant ‘A’ Frames and the Thomas Hammer ‘A’ Frame. I only choose sponsors who have a real connection to me and/or the project and here I’m able to explain why Thomas Hammer Coffee is my Founding Sponsor. It’s also cool to throw in some non photo/non text in there, almost cartoon-like to mix up things a bit.
Yes, these are much more impressive when you see them all together and especially printed at 2 feet by 4 feet, but at least you can now see them. Try to get out to a exhibition to experience the full effect. And don’t forget that nominations are still open for S50. Take a moment out of your day to tell us about someone who has been working to make Spokane a better place to live, work, and visit, especially in the Arts, Music, and Culture scenes. Thanks!
