The Judys get into construction

Judy Johnson-Williams and Judy Shintani (me!) collaborated on an installation for SOMArts Day of the Dead, Honoring Revolution with Visions of Healing. Our altar honors construction workers present and past, and the rebuilding of New Orleans. Two skeleton construction workers hammer away on the roof of the new building made out of the pallets (which SOMArts provided). Inside are 3 jazz musicians playing a piano, trumpet, and sax. Almost everything in the installation was constructed from recycled materials – a speciality of Judy Johnson-Williams, a cardboard wizard!

You can still see our installation, as well as about 45 other terrific  altars at SOMArts until 11/6. A closing reception is on the last evening.

Sat, November 6, 5:00pm – 7:30pm
