My “Flights of Fancy” dress, purse, and jewelry is made out of 97 percent Neenah paper. Some inspiration included; flying over Iceland, topographic maps, and wanting to achieve a light, dreamy feeling. This annual show put on by The One Club Denver raises money for a local kids’ art program. This year featured 50 designers including student designers.
I was thrilled to have my photography included in the group show, #iseeDC2019, at the District Architecture Center. If you are a lover of DC, its buildings, and different perspectives, check out the show on view through June 7, 2019.
I enjoyed an interesting architecture tour and talk by Darrin Alfred, Curator of Architecture, Design, & Graphics at the Denver Art Museum. This FUN experience was designed by Brian Corrigan of Futures United Network.
A few things I learned:
~The North Building is getting its face-lift by @fentressarchitects and @machadosilvetti.
~It is the only completed Gio Ponte building in North America.
~It uses 1 million tiles! .
~Custom curved glass will be used for the welcome center.
~Gio Ponte originally wanted a castle like moat around building.
~This was the first high rise art museum building in U.S.
~Gio Ponte liked diamond shapes (notice the diamond and other window shapes.).
~The rooftop will have amazing views of the Rockies.
One of my joys is getting off screen, using hand tools, getting sawdust in my hair, and patiently building furniture. Here are a few examples of my Nordic style line including a desk, bench, his and hers nightstand, chair and side table.
I had fun with a photoshoot for Brian Corrigan, showing off his newest venture for Futures United Network—a holiday pop up market, focused on experiences, such as an architectural tour and a bug dinner from the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and Bananno Concepts.
