Had an amazing time helping Kaki with an exhibit for this year's Art in Bloom at the New Orleans Museum of Art. The theme was "The Grande Dame is Turning 100" in honor of NOMA's centennial year.

Our interpretation revolved around the romantic idea of a true southern lady coming in from a day in her wild garden and resting her belongings on a table. We played off oversized scale and created a huge hat out of woven kraft paper, which we sewed into shape. We also created crazy rope from tissue paper + books, which was wound with string and fabric. Kaki then wove an amazing beehive for our Grande Dame Gardner. *Apologies for the poor picture quality :( *

The exhibit will be on from now through the weekend.
