The Muckenthaler window at John Wayne Airport
Dec 2012 - March 2013
Amongst all the hustle and bustle of terminal C at the John Wayne Airport, there is this long corridor where random weary and heart filled travelers jockey from one terminal to the next. Along the newly contemporary glass filled corridor sits on one side a handsome row of freshly installed exhibition cases. These impressive glass cases that rise from the floor up to the ceiling is where the Muckenthaler has an exciting exhibit showcasing all the programs, exhibitions, memorabilia and fact filled information about the cultural center.
There is an impressive display of art work supporting the culturally enriched program that the Muckenthaler has to offer. Classes in book making, quilting, photography, performing arts and one of the centers stronger programs the ceramics program are well represented.
Within this well put together and curated exhibit sits two of my hand built, hand coiled and hand painted vases. It brings back vivid memories of a group exhibition and the excitement and prestige of my previous showing at the John Wayne Airport back in 2007 with the O.C. Contemporary Ceramics Exhibit. Although that exhibit was displayed in a passenger only area of the airport, this exhibit is open for the general public for all to see. Hopefully the cornucopia of travelers going to and from from all points and destinations from around the world, will take the time to check out the exhibit and support the center and its all accommodating enriching programs.
