Samurai! in Worcester Art Museum

11164661_10152939378802903_1122242942090185222_n

In the fall of last year, I took a trip to Worcester, Mass to the Worcester Art Museum who looked to find an angle for an exhibition of samurai armor. Unlike exhibitions of samurai armor in the past, this one needed to be different. In this case, it wasn’t enough to only show armor, so the idea of contemporary art to narrate the stories we all may have seemed to fit perfectly. Not only art, but the layout and design of the space was a huge part of making this exhibition work. Gladly, it was one of their largest opening nights and with the newly painted murals by Andrew Hem, Mari Inukai, and Audrey Kawasaki, the exhibition will shine until later September, 2015. 11244907_10152787599852344_631721930142668215_n R0029711 Most won’t read the text on the big wall at the Worcester Art Museum. I thought this was a great time to let people know what went on in the process of setting up a show as interesting as Samurai! R0029687 copy Here’s what my text says:
