For my solo show at the Julia C. Butridge Gallery at the Dougherty Art Center, I created large projects that relied on friends and helpers to make and install. While planning the show, the Gallery Director Melissa Bartling was incredibly supportive and helpful, and got Parks and Recreation to supply a boom crane for the install. So many folks helped that I want to show you pictures of the install and very much thank everyone who helped. It was truly a collaboration to have in installation go so well.
The show Sacred Space was funded and supported in part by the City of Austin through the Cultural Arts Division believing an investment in the Arts is an investment in Austin’s future. So thank you for all who helped me get that support, including Laurence Miller of Fluent~Collaborative, and my many friends who helped edit and write letters of recommendation.
On the LONG list of people who I am deeply grateful for their help who are staff at the City of Austin: Melissa Bartling, Mary Brogan, Steve Weaver, Alex Serna, Mike Garza, Norma Zapata, and all of the gallery staff who kept an eye on the show, gave me feedback, and answered visitors’ questions.
Thank you so much to my friends who helped: Eunice Garza, Larry Vanston, Robby Lee, Jake Lenahan, Humberto Trevino Jr., Carly Walker, Beth Coffey, Brendon Bigelow, Sebastian Miles, Randy Bounds, Todd Campbell, Blake Smith, Marlon McAllister, Yeni Woodall, Erin Coupal, Elaine Holton, and probably another dozen more. Could not have done it without you!!
