some final mini stuff

well, today is the last day of the exhibit. on a total high note, the show recently won a 2010 salt lake city weekly arty award for best sculpture/mixed media exhibition!

a couple good links:

fixes
to follow my previous whine about how i didn’t construct the obstacles in a manner to survive the clumsy feet of the masses, i’ve been meaning to post photos of the fixes and adjustments that super-fab artist, salt lake art center preparator and friend jared steffensen (who also won a 2010 arty!) did for my golf hole in mid august. i’ve wanted to collaborate with jared ever since i first stumbled in to his poor yorick studio years ago, so i’m thrilled with this unexpected collaboration of sorts. thanks, jared!!!

final thoughts on the mini green, or learning to let go

well, it’s been a little over two weeks since the opening of contemporary masters, and lisa and i have begun a completely new adventure: moving to the virgin islands. this permanent move (lisa is already there, i leave july 15) has been enough to take my mind off the golf hole for a while, but my friend tiffini just posted a link to some photos of a recent utah museum of fine arts/young benefactors event held on the course, and it brought my attention back to my piece.

holes no.13 through 18

for those who missed the previous two posts: you can call 801.349.3498 to listen to a super-nifty cell phone audio tour. once you’ve called in, simply dial each hole number followed by the # sign (so, for hole 3, you’d dial 3#) to hear each artist talk about their golf hole for about 1.5 minutes.

below are holes 13-18 of contemporary masters, artist-designed miniature golf. all photos were taken during the public opening reception, june 18, 2010 at the salt lake art center. my previous posts covered holes 1-6 and 7-12. Continue reading

holes no.1 through 6

ok — it’s taken me a couple weeks to decompress from the install, openings, road trip, and catching up with sleep & work, but i’m finally ready to post photos of the entire course.

what’s more, you can call 801.349.3498 to listen to a super-nifty cell phone audio tour. once you’ve called in, simply dial each hole number followed by the # sign (so, for hole 3, you’d dial 3#) to hear each artist talk about their golf hole for about 1.5 minutes.

so, without further ado, i give you holes 1 through 6 of contemporary masters, artist-designed miniature golf. all photos were taken during the public opening reception, june 18, 2010 at the salt lake art center. the next two posts will showcase holes 7-12 and 13-18, respectively. Continue reading
