Crystal Open Studios

For the fifteenth annual City-Wide Open Studios festival in New Haven, the organizers at Artspace asked me to help them implement an event-wide theme for the first time. To celebrate Open Studios’ crystal anniversary, they chose the theme crystal.
To convey Artspace’s vision of crystals as a metaphor for art, artists, and the events — which reflect, refract, and shine new light on the diversity of New Haven, I photographed dozens of real crystals and combined them in colorful collages.

Artists and the greater community responded to the new imagery for Open Studios and we had a wonderful event. You can see some of what I saw there in this this Flickr album.
