Looking back on an amazing week of collaboration and conversation. Visiting artist Paul LaJeunesse talks about his working process and mural plans with KEVN Black Hills Fox News. Visit link for more information.
If you’ve been wondering about the kinetic sculpture Taiji that was to be placed in the Nimitz Boulevard median, it is still at home in North County with sculptor, Jeffery Laudenslager.
PLA volunteers, who have worked for about two years to bring the kinetic artwork to our community, hoped it would have arrived months ago. Installation is still tangled in red tape and we are working with the City of San Diego’s Development Services Department.
Everyone at the City is friendly and eternally helpful, but they keep requesting additional details about how this 100 pound sculpture will be secured to the existing 18” deep 5’ 8” diameter cement footing. Assisting us is a terrific Point Loma contractor, experienced in these procedures.
We have submitted the original, approved construction plan from four years ago, when the Nimitz work was completed, we have submitted revisions and additions to this small area of the plans, we submitted further drawings of exactly how the sculpture will be installed, and we have made multiple trips to City offices and exchanged many emails. And on it goes ... We will tell you more as soon as there is any news.
So I did manage to check out the #communityart studio a second time. It's funny, while with the religious professionals of color I've been extremely quiet, taking it all in. When I went here, I didn't. Shut. Up. I talked w a participant about art and life, the director about the art hive network and funding, and one of the staff members about PUPPETS. Like.. making a puppet parade more accessible by altering "backpack" puppets to fit wheelchairs--without hindering the wheelchair's movement and useability. Inclusion practices for my community work as I'm trying to figure out next steps in my faith work. Ugh if I thought I'd have a plan after this conference, I was wrong..
It's the last day to register for the Kingston Arts Art Blitz that's happening next weekend.
