Mom (Ann) and I are having our art kimono as the backdrop for Antje Duvekot and other performers at the Old Court (in Lowell, MA) tomorrow as part of Lowell Celebrates Kerouac and the Urban Village Arts Series!
Our kimono was inspired by Antje’s song “Long Way” which has lyrics about a road trip and says in the song “on he heels of Kerouac” so it seemed like a perfect fit to tie in with her performance for Lowell Celebrates Kerouac. The performance is free so be sure to stop by if you can about 8ish at Old Court: http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Urban-Village-Art-Series-UVAS/321488123573
All Kerouac events are at: http://www.lowellcelebrateskerouac.org/lck-2010
We are so completely tickled. Antje has seen the kimono in photos, but not in person yet. Tomorrow it is.
The kimono was initially created for Glenn Szegedy’s and Cindy Hughes’ kimono exhibit at the Brush and was also recently displayed in the Loading Dock Gallery and even in the Globe North.
I have blog posts about the kimono making process if you haven't seen them, too: http://friendsfabricart.blogspot.com/2010/01/kimono-beginnings.html
