Three new commissions
Scott Oliver, Carla Duarte (both pictured above) and Christy Matson are the latest artists commissioned by Earthbound Moon.
Scott will be installing a work in Slaton, Texas, outside the WaterSpace Gallery. Carla will be installing a work on a ranch outside Plainview, Texas. Both installs are scheduled for late September. And should be accompanied by a carnival of events.
Christy will be installing a work in Chania, Greece in 2013.
We are absolutely thrilled to welcome these incredible artists to the project.
Last week, Scott, Carla, and I were in Texas visiting the sites, and meeting the wonderful arts community there. Below you can see Scott and Carla enjoying the plaza where he will be working in September. EbM friend and landscape architect Matt Weaver will be assisting with the project.
Evanston, Slaton, and Plainview are the full slate of 2011 installations. For 2012, EbM is planning two installs near Albuquerque, NM, and one near Moffat, CO, on lands we own. We are looking for a property in Detroit, MI. And negotiating a lease in Baja California, Mexico. We have a few other surprises in the can for 2012, but can't reveal them just yet.
