People who know me KNOW that I use vision boards to clarify and manifest my goals. In a recent iteration of my vision board, I attached a statement saying, “Make art your day job.” This reflects my intention to integrate art into my daily praxis because art is a powerful tool for healing and self-authorship. Two months later, one of my bucket list items occurred: I was invited to lead a My Favorite Things Tour at the Seattle Art Museum! The tour took place during the community opening for Jeffrey Gibson’s exhibit, Like a Hammer. I loved every moment of presenting my selections by Gibson and Nick Cave to a captive audience in a bustling space. The tour went so well, I was invited back for an encore at the SAM Remix event!
Many thanks to photographer Jen Au for capturing these memorable moments from the event:
