Saxelby, Halcyon, Hillyer, etc.

It has been a real pleasure helping Georgia Saxelby with her To Future Women project the last few weeks. 

I first met Saxelby while helping Gayle Friedman install her (amazing!) show at the Hillyer in June. Saxelby needed an extra hand with a couple of things installing her show at the Hillyer also, and she brought me on board for the next steps after I made her a couple custom tools out of materials available in the gallery.

Over the next few weeks, I helped Saxelby fabricate and install her work at the Smithsonian Arts and Industries building for the By the People Festival.

While it may or may not be too late to contribute a letter to be archived at the Philip's Collection as part of this project, taking the time to have a moment of reflection, of introspection- it feels right and necessary.
