Let's All Dance
The Vashon Heritage Museum has hosted the award winning exhibit "In and Out, Being LGBTQ on Vashon Island" since June of 2019. Originally slated to run until March of 2020 it's been on exhibit until this week, September 6, 2021.
I'm honored to have been asked to create five window panels for the exhibit and be a part of the creative process envisioned by Deb Phillimore, Ellen Kritzman. Stephen Silha, Jesica De Wire, Bruce Haulman and the inspired advisory board they assembled.
We all identify with the music of our time. I asked friends to share the music they identified as significant in their lives, relationships and coming out story. Their music inspired the monotype/collagraph prints with cut and printed wood sculpture that became the Let's All Dance window panels for the exhibit. The panels were each 68 x 36 in. and titled (in the order above) Small Town Boy, The Band Played On, Let's All Dance, Anthem and Break Free.
Here's a wonderful video and another chance to see the exhibit with explanations by Stephen Silha and Ellen Kritzman, co-curators of the exhibit- https://vashonheritagemuseum.org/exhibition/lgbtq-vashon/
