2013 hasn't even begun yet and already there is so much on calendar for the coming months. The first bit of news that thrills me is that Garcia and I were chosen by the RISD Museum and guest juror Alejandro Diaz to headline an exhibition beginning in February and going through June. Our piece is a collaborative work called Waiting for Godot which is dedicated to the ongoing civil rights struggle of LGBTQ peoples where equality and the freedom to marry is concerned. You can check out Alejandro Diaz's current exhibit RISD Business: Sassy Signs and Sculptures at the RISD Museum which will be showing through June.
I discovered that my beloved Aunt, Brown University History of Art & Architecture and Italian Studies Professor, Evie Lincoln has worked diligently on a current exhibition at the RISD Museum called The Festive City. For more info follow the link and below a little visual as a teaser. Also, there is a symposium where she will be speaking so check it out and register while there is still room. The symposium is March 1st 1-6:30 in the Metcalf Auditorium in the Chace Center at the RISD Museum.
Also, my fabulous uncle, Brian Shure will be showing in a faculty show during the same time. He is an exquisite artist and please follow his work here. http://brianshure.com
