“Plastics Under Cover” “Grate Works of Art” my current exhibit has “Un Covered” new and exciting challenges. In a regular museum or gallery, labels only present a few details like the title and size of an art work.
But a History Museum, like Orlando’s Orange County Regional History Center, wants to “Un Cover” all the details. so many of the pieces are accompanied by text and photos showing the creation process.
So many transactions, e-mails and phone calls were involved in providing details about the art, that I was able to meet and appreciate the talented staff at OCRHC: Pam Schwartz, Curator of Exhibitions, Emilie Arnold, her Assistant and Whitney Broadaway, Collections Registrar.
Here is a communication from Emilie Arnold in March of 2016: “Right now, we’re tentatively planning an environmentally-focused local art exhibit to coincide with “Plastics Unwrapped.” This is a traveling exhibit out of the Burke Museum in Seattle that discusses the history and application of plastic materials and also their impacts on the environment.
“Plastics Unwrapped” runs from February 4 – April 23, 2017, so it’s still a year away, but we believe your work may fit in, and we really love that you have at least a few possible Orlando-focused works in hand.
We enjoyed watching “City of Orlando” highlighted in the UCF Artisode. Could you tell me more about “FDOT, Do Not Pollute” and “The City Beautiful”—even send photos if you have them?”
I enjoyed seeing my art at the History Center and experiencing the featured Visiting Exhibition: “Plastics Unwrapped” from Seattle’s Burke Museum at the opening on February 4, 2017. If you get to see the exhibits, please share your comments.
