It's a Glamorous Job
Today at LUX we began taking down the old show, Tomas Rivas, to make room for the next show, Astrid Preston. Tomas works mostly with dry wall that he carves into, creating interesting architectural images. The pieces are fragile and not really meant to last forever, but it is our responsibility to make sure they make it back to Tomas in one piece. This meant that I spent a large portion of my day with blue painters tape in hand taping down the little flaps on his work, so they could lay flat for shipping.
After awhile, all the works that had started out like this...
...ended up covered in this. Let me jut say, I was grateful when the time came for me to enter donor names into an email list. Sheesh!
