The 50 States Project

August 5th, 2009 Permalink

One of my flickr contacts, trixiebedlam, is attempting to visit and shoot all 50 states this year. It’s an ambitious project that has produced some great results, which you can see in this collection on Flickr. She has visited 36 out of the 50 states so far, and is trying to raise enough money to […]

She has visited 36 out of the 50 states so far, and is trying to raise enough money to cover the expenses involved in getting to the last 14. If you would like to help, you can head over to the 50 States Project kickstarter page. Kickstarter is a pretty cool concept: If the project has enough support, it will be funded. If not, nobody has to pay. She is offering some great incentives to supporters, such as a set of 50 state postcards or a photo book of the project. The economy sucks right now, but if there’s one thing worth supporting, it’s art.

2008 Challenge, Week 33: Rolling Hills Memorial

August 14th, 2008 Permalink

Week 33 of the 2008 Challenge. Matthews Corporation International Freedom Sculpture, located in Rolling Hills Memorial Park. This sculpture used to have two hands and a bird, but it has been vandalized. Now the effect is of a hand reaching desperately from the grave, rather than hands releasing a bird to be free.

They offer classes in flameworking, glass blowing, woodworking, neon, welding, and more. I’ve taken flameworking classes there, and worked with one of the instructors in his studio. They have a great group of instructors, and a great creative feel. If you are ever interested in trying something new, The Crucible is a great way to do it.
