The Madonna and Child Project is installed! Everything is ready for the opening reception tomorrow night! My husband and I went in together and thanks to his skill and expertise we were able to install everything in about two hours. I am so excited I can hardly express myself. As every different portrait went up I thought about the models involved, their stories, their experiences. Every one of these pieces means something to me. I feel almost like I have this bond to each and every one of the mothers who participated in my project.
Many of these mothers I have never even met in real life. We met over facebook or through blogs, and I learned these intimate details of their lives, their birth story. I almost feel as though they are my sisters on some level. I feel strangely protective of them, as I would a sister.
I am so excited for tomorrow night. I'm so excited to share this all with you. Please come to the Muir Gallery at 7:00pm for the opening reception.
