Cosi show has stalled

July 5, 2008 1 comment

To my absolute surprise, I find out, the day the work is to go up, that the general manager of the Cosi’s I was making arrangements with did not tell any of the other key players of the store what was about to go down. This incredible oversight on his part may lead to there being no show. It’s still up in the air so I’ll find out some time on Tuesday whether it’s a go/no go. The final say will come from the district manager who had no idea what was going on. Paperwork has to be signed and he has to approve the work that would be hung (not the manager I was dealing with). That’s all fine and dandy with me but I thought that those details were being taken cared of-obviously not. So we’ll see. I hope it happens cause I’ve got some kick-booty work for the world (around Grand Central) to see. Wish me the best!!

I’m taking over Cosi’s

Hi all,

Hey New Yorkers, are you familiar with the restaurant chain Cosi‘s? If not, they make unique sandwiches on oh so delicious bread-yum yum!! Well they have several locations in Manhattan and the manager of several of these stores put a post on craigslist looking for artists to liven up the space for 2 months at a time. Several emails and a meeting later, I’m booked! This Cosi‘s store is located on 44th and 3rd avenue. But what a challenge it is-let me tell ya. Yet, that’s all the more reason why I want to go for it. Filling up a high traffic store with only my work is certainly not an opportunity to be missed. Now that I’ve been given the go ahead, now I need to create 11 (that’s right ELEVEN) masterpieces in 4 weeks. I can probably do fewer larger paintings, but I have to worry about how to transport them from my place to the store and lugging around a couple of 4 feet x 4 feet pieces on the subway doesn’t seem that safe so I would rather break that down to several smaller pieces. Luckily I have ideas for most of them.

To make this happen, I have to put aside my lovely oils (sigh, I miss using them already) and switch to acrylics for this task. So far so good with the water based paints. I’ll of course keep you posted.
