“Dance,” a tribute to Carinne Binda and Ron Cunningham
In early 2015, I spent hours with the Sacramento Ballet, sitting on the floor, and watching the process of creating. Ron Cunningham and Carinne Binda, are now the former directors (Emeritus), after a 30 year commitment to dance in Sacramento. I wanted to understand how these amazing people make a ballet, and wrote an essay: Link to SacBee essay about the Ballet. Then, I had a wonderful experience creating a series of paintings for “Peter Pan,” which were projected during performances at the Convention Center. See video about that: Link to Bee video
Now, as part of Wide Open Walls, we’re creating a mural tribute to Ron and Carinne. See my blog for updates on the mural, which will be installed at the Capital Athletic Club, starting this Wednesday, August 7th. My welding partner, Bill Kuyper is doing the actual install of panels that I painted in my studio.
