I was thinking about this statement I made in my last blog, “It would be interesting if the restaurant could find some use for these windows. Hmm..why not a “venue” to display art?”. I made this statement in regards to this picture.
Well, why not? There are three of these teller booths and each one could be the home to a monthly site-specific (or not) project. Artists could submit project ideas. There is a decent amount of space that is covered even though it is not enclosed. The receptions could be held in the open space.
I think it could be another reason to go to Collinsville, specificlly to downtown Collinsville. I also think it was be nice if the projects could be illuminated so they could be seen in the evening…until maybe 10 pm. Downtown really doesn’t have much going on after 5 pm. There are some bars and that is about it.
It can be not-for-profit since sales would be hard to come by. Anyway, it is an idea that is sticking right now. Really, what if? Could this work?
This blog is to work in conjunction to my website, www.rebeccaeilering.com/recsindex.htm. This is a way to communicate what inspires me and the work I do. It is also to communicate thoughts and interesting tidbits that are related to art and design (both graphic and web). This is to allow those interested to find out more about me and about what I am working on.
I like the idea of a blog because it is a way to communicate to potential clients and people that have a general interest in art and design. Plus, the blog format is interactive in that you can post comments/questions that are relevant to the postings.
The format is not going to be dictated by one subject but it will be a forum to speak about many subjects I am interested in. Ultimately, I hope you will find some interest in the subjects too.
In the next few days, I am going to post some images of things that inspire me. Really what inspires me are my surroundings and the everyday sights that strike up my mind and imagination. That is sort of a hint but you will soon know what I mean.
