While the completed works of art are beautiful, nothing excites me more than the process of how they are created. The planning for this project has been in the works for over a year and we finally get to celebrate tonight. I would like to thank the 12 artists that I invited to the project as well as the other curators, artists, and individuals who made this project possible. Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight!
We were presented this raw space to be used as a showcase for the artists and their work, which they created at their own expense. Due to the highly competitive nature of the art world, this practice has become increasingly common as artists search for that new connection which brings them their next paid gig or commission. That being said, it's immensely satisfying to know that some of the artists I invited have already directly benefited from this project.
For those of you who can't attend tonight's opening, I will be giving tours that are open to everyone while we still have access to the space. Looking specifically for teachers who want to bring their students to see the exhibition as we work to inspire future generations of artists and creatives. Also, looking for art collectors who are interested in learning more about the artists and setting up studio visits for private commissions. Lastly, looking for businesses that are interested in commissioning these types of installations in their office spaces. Still looking for additional press and influencers to spread the word of the project as well. If you know someone that falls into one of these categories, please tag them in this post or email me at tower4arts (@) gmail.com for more information or to register for a tour. Thank you - Josh
