Louise Nevelson Day

September 23, 2015  •  2 Comments

The early morning fog did not stop the crowd of art supporters and Nevelson fans to the early morning gathering. Announcing the official City of Jackson day commemorating Louise Nevelson. Bringing new awareness to the piece that she brought to Jackson.

The speakers from the day

Janet Meyer, Chair JPAC, "MC, Welcome and the role JPAC & Summer Night Tree"
Derek Dobies, Vice Mayor, City of Jackson "Public Arts future in Jackson"
Chuck Aymond - Past E.D. of Ella Sharp - "A day with Louise Nevelson in 1978"
Rep. Earl Poleski, "Embrace art within your community"
John Bracey, E.D. MCACA - "The impact Louise Nevelson's artwork and cultural arts in the state of Michigan.

 

I chose black and white images from a quote I found of hers.

"I fell in love with black; it contained all color. It wasn't a negation of color... Black is the most aristocratic color of all... You can be quiet, and it contains the whole thing."
Louise Nevelson

Fantastic photography, Seth. Jackson's commitment to art and culture downtown will help the city thrive once more. I'm glad that the city council and Public Arts Commission are working towards that goal.
