I spent most of the day working with Tom to assemble the silk-screen machine, only to find out, near the end, we had installed some stuff upside down, and failed to put a bushing at the bottom to make it spin proper.
Once we realized this, it was time to throw in the towel.
We decided to pick up where we left off tomorrow and prepare for the evenings festivities.
The Contemporary Arts Center was hosting a grand opening gala for the new building.
Super crowded, lots of energy, and a perfectly curated opening. Art felt more relevant than it had in some time for me, and sharing that realization within the community made it all the more powerful. (Though I look forward going back when there’s more air.)
UPDATE: Photos from the evening now online.
