A Day of Dual Events; Friday, March 6th 2015

Whereas my husband Cam and I often enjoy working closely together on our creative ventures, next Friday, March 6th, we both have big events happening on opposite sides of the city.  If you are in the Phoenix area next weekend, I encourage you to go for a drive and check them out.  If you are not in the area, you can read about the ‘goings on’ here.

In Scottsdale I will be at ASU’s event Emerge at Skysong Center.  It is a “festival of artistic and scientific visitations of the future.” The whole event runs from 3pm – 12am and is free and open to the public.  The event is featuring NPR’s Radiolab founder and host, Jad Abumrad who will be on the outdoor stage at 7:00pm.

In this project I am working as the Production Manager for the Set Design Team.  We have been hard at work creating a blank canvas for all of the performance and interactive teams we call “visitations.”  Each team will have a designated space on our “set” to present their projects in.  Our design team includes Stage Manager Cooper Sanghyun Yoo, Lighting Designers Hailey Featherstone and Jamie Arakas as well as Projection Designer Ian Shelanskey, Set Designer Mahya Najafianrazavi, Technical Designer Michael Blaney, Technical Director Max Evjen and our Co Director Megan Halpern.  It has been fun to take a different seat in the creative process.  I have enjoyed the collaboration as well as working more closely in the field of performance art.

On the other side of town, as part of the “Art Detour” weekend, {9} The Gallery will be hosting  the artwork of seven Master of Fine Art Painting students from Arizona State University.  My husband Cam DeCaussin will be one of the featured artists.  The reception for the show will be on Friday at 6pm.  Cam will have several oil paintings in the show.  This event is also free, but the work will be for sale.

The show will also feature the work of Travis Ivey, Swapna Das, Joe Holdren, AJ Nafziger, Rory Alan MacLean, & Lisa Hoffner.

If you take a walk next door to the gallery, you will find “The Lodge Art Studio” where the closing reception for “Being Human” will be taking place.  On the outside of the building, you will be able to spot the freshly painted mural by Rebecca Green that I recently assisted with.  You can read my blog post about that project here as well as Becca’s blog post, and the Phoenix New Times article too.
