The Salon round-up will include presentations by salons artist on the progress of their projects throughout the summer. Artist Andrew Printer and Ann Olsen will present a reading based on the recorded dialogue between two groups of quilters who created two quilts over 10 weeks at the Museum. The two quilts were inspired by and recalled the original NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt in Washington, D.C. and other themes of that decade, ranging from Paul Simon’s Graceland to the fall of the Berlin wall.
The Salon Round-up will include updates on works by Printer, The Border Corps and Joshua Tonies, presented in the form of a lighting round PowerPoint session. Amy Briere, Manager of Educator and Student Programs, will lead a workshop to create works made from actual flip-flops. The evening will convene with a concert by musician Mark Dzula. Dzula’s eclectic mix is inspired by disparate sources such as Albert Camus, Victor Jarra and Pete’s Dragon and combines Southern California surf music with mariachi instrumentation.
