A Selection of photos from “Before You Were Born,” the San Jose Museum of Quilt’s and Textiles‘ 40th Anniversary Celebration. All of these photos are taken by Octavio Martinez. The first photo is of San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo – take a look at his face inside of the installation! The other photos feature Courtney Hartman during her performance. The museum will host another performance inside of “Before You Were Born,” during the First Friday Art Walk in downtown San Jose on June 2nd. Space is limited in the installation, so come by early in the evening!
Seeing these photos made me so happy. Octavio was able to capture the installation and performance in ways I simply could not. Courtney looked stunning and was able to captivate the audience with her talent and expression. Collaboration is very fun and I feel fortunate to be able to work with other talented people. It’s really exciting to see what can happen when different skill sets are bought to the table.
Also – SJMQT is hosting a screen printing workshop that I will be leading. I will also be speaking about my work and process. Learn more here and sign up! There are only 15 spots available.
Here are two other photos of the Mayor with my work, both taken by Octavio:
