I know you’ve seen images from this series before, but considering the series is called Change, I thought I would take this opportunity to discuss it further. I have lived in Jacksonville since my Freshman year of High school. That makes 8 years now. These past 8 years, more specifically these past 4 have been the most significant years of my life in terms of personal growth. My memories here and the experiences I’ve had have shaped me into who I am. This series, while never fully finished took figures, each representing me/ some aspect of myself (i.e. painters, photographers, readers/workers) and placed them in locations around Jacksonville that have been significant to me in some way (i.e. The Cummer Museum in which I volunteered for a few months and interned for nearly a year). I strove to fully explore Jacksonville’s effect on my life before I moved forward in my endeavors elsewhere.
I took this photo with my iPhone 4s during Jacksonville’s Crowdfunding Festival- One Spark. I had just taken a behind the scenes tour of MOCA with my gallery practices class and quickly shot this panorama from the 4th floor art studio window, looking down on Hemming Park and the giant foam duck UNF sculpture students created. The One Spark weekend was so much fun and I think it was the start of some great things to come in Jacksonville, FL.
Wow, what a night! So many great supports came out to our event April 5th. The Hyppo was a happening place we had live music by Pam Affronti and So Intense, they were so amazing I saw people start to walk by and turn around to come check out what was going on. Oh and let me tell you about the art! Artist from the Anonymous Society of Artist came out to both support the event and contribute work to the event. Our artist line up includes:
-Michael Frank Clark
– Kyle Bromley
We had a special raffle also for over $100 in art supply give away and I am so happy to say the winner is ….. Sage Wong. I expect amazing things from this little lady. She was the youngest artist in our show. This 14 year old talent starts art high school next year so this will be a great start to her art career.
