Had my presentation on Friday (the one all about sustainable funding and paying museum staff a thriving wage) and I was not chosen to win the cash prize and present at the in-person conference in the Fall.

Healing machines. It’s a phrase Guadalupe Maravilla uses to describe the Disease Throwers, which are displayed in “Tierra Blanca Joven.”
Here, Guadalupe explains the purpose and properties of this sculpture series, including the skin of Disease Thrower #0, which is made from ash and coal from fires that accompanied sound baths he hosted at Socrates Sculpture Park during the summer of 2021.
See the sculpture series in-person as part of #GuadalupeMaravillaBkM through September 18.
