Warm greetings! I hope this finds you well. I am grateful for you.
October was a busy month of festivals and wrapping up exhibitions. My project, the I Love You Institute
, was part of Touchstone Theatre's
third Festival UnBound
in Bethlehem, PA. The 5-day festival hosted events including plays, discussions, music and dance. Together with the Bethlehem community we created a community quilt centered on the theme of gratitude. I was lucky to work with MFA students from Moravian University
. It was so amazing to be with my Transart colleague James P. Jordan and all my new friends as well as undergrads and amazing students from the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts
. On the final day of the festival, the quilt was suspended from the bridge (pictured above
) as part of the closing ceremony and it is now part of Touchstone Theatre
's permanent collection. It was an incredible experience that I am so grateful to have been a part of!
The Times News
covered the event and you can read more about it here
. This video
is also a preview of the festival before it opened. I will share a short video of the project when it is available next month.
