Art / dance mashup installation
West coast swing dancers captured residual art from elements of connection and movement through improvisational lead/follow connection, common ground on June 23, 2018 during 48 Blocks.
Two 40″x96″ latex and acrylic on wood paintings
Gigantic thanks to dancers Mike Pisco, Mike Reher & Buffy, and Carol & Emmet for being a part of this… and also to those who came to watch… and those who photographed / recorded it, and the festival-goers who watched, photographed, recorded, snap-chatted, instagrammed, facebooked, tweeted, shared, and jumped in to be part of this project. I’m just really grateful for the way so many people became a part of this offbeat project… wait… I mean on-beat project.
And the toddler dancers had so much fun that my heart is still smiling.
AND I screenprinted shirts… maybe I’ll list the extras on Swing Swag.
Kind of very excited this gets to happen ❤ Tomorrow 4-6pm @48blocksac @tangeroutlets – The Walk N Michigan & Arctic Aves. Atlantic City . I screen printed some thank you shirts for the west coast swing dancers literally traveling hours just to help me with this kooky-sounding project. I learned screen printing is a little tricky and I’m not quitting my day job. Something about these shirts has an variable artsy vibe though. It fits. I’m going with ’em. Plus we’re out of time… 48 Blocks art festival kickoff party is tonight 🤗 details at @48blocksac. Come! . #48blocksac #dancemashup #art #acnj #artlife #artfestival
