COLOR FOR THE PEOPLE and COLOR BAR

While in residence at the McColl Center for Art & Innovation Aug 28-Dec 5, I will be rolling out a new program with Color for the People, a site-specific exploration of color and taste. Each week, I will find a color from Charlotte’s landscape and apply it to the gallery walls and furniture to create an immersive color-field painting and meditative space. To deepen visitors’ sensory engagement, I will host a series of “Color Bar” events over the course of the residency: On selected Thursday evenings, she will serve cocktails and treats to match the color of the week, encouraging the public to reflect on the relationships between experiences of color, flavor, and people.  Color for the People and Color Bar intend to create space for remembering the vital roles that art and food continue to play in fostering shared experiences of pleasure and joy, which I believe can be medicine for times like these.
