Kirk Reeves memorial

Gwenn Seemel’s Kirk Reeves 2014

-—The Kirk Reeves mural—-
Kirk was a street performer and a friend. He passed away in 2012, and last year I painted a 10 by 38 foot mural portrait of him on NE Grand at Lloyd in Portland, Oregon. The articles in this section of my blog reveal some of what I learned as I made my first piece of public art as well as what I have learned since.

-—Art in DC—-
My work is at the Joan Hisaoka Art Gallery and at the Takoma location of Busboys and Poets through 5 December for Implicit Bias!

-—Art talk—-
In July, I spoke at a conference in France and this is the video of the presentation with English subtitles! It builds on ideas from my 2014 TEDx talk about the role of imitation in art, and everything is explained in greater detail in this book.
