Art in Bloom starts tomorrow, and we have a new object!
What a surprise to hear this week that the feather wings of our object “Goddess” were found to be bug-infested, and the piece was removed from the museum. It has been replaced with an oversized photograph by the same artist. The works have similarities — the photo includes the same wings worn by a transgender woman in a long, flowing satin gown reminiscent of the “Goddess” ribbons, but in a different color.
The Art in Bloom team asked us not to change our design, and they are crafting a way to talk about the change of object in the tours. But if you visit you’ll notice that a number of elements – like color palette – don’t quite line up, and now you’ll know why!
Never before has an artwork been replaced just before Art in Bloom. We have a first!Ellen and Kate
