One Day Artist Residency

#DrawArt images created for One Day Artist Residency  

I recently enjoyed participating in a One Day Artist Residency. A progressive and new program by Adam Reed Rozan, Director of Audience Engagement at  Worcester Art Museum in Massachusetts.

New mobile technology is how I conducted the entire Artist Residency – by using digital media, the museums’s online resources, social media and new innovations in audience engagement. Please read more about how I used mobile and digital technology along with new media innovations with #DrawArt

The highlight of audience engagement was that I included a link each time I shared an image for others to Watch it Live on a #DrawArt Digital Sketchbook that I created just for the One Day Residency which indefinitely extends the audience’s experience with the ability to watch video playbacks of the drawings and the opportunity to learn more about each work, see the original art and link back to the museum online.

Many of you have been working hard this Summer in museums, traveling with your families or even getting married.  I have been exploring the world of computers, games and cosplay.  Did I really write that? Yes, cosplay. I went to an Annual Sci-Fi Games Convention called CONvergence in Minneapolis. I dressed up as a back-up dancer in my favorite childhood cartoon The Jetsons..the episode with Jet-Screamer singing EEP-OPP-ORK-AHAH (means I love you). My computer scientist friend Clement Shimizu (from AAM2012) designed a headband with dual video monitors playing the song!

Please read more about how I attend this crazy Sci-Fi Games Convention. I compare my experience to other museum conferences I’ve attended in the past and explore the beginning of the development a Strong Feminine Game Character for a 14th Century woman in Erfurt, Germany who must evade angry mobs, flagellants and disease to gather and hide Jewish ritual objects, including the Jewish Communal Wedding Ring, part of the Erfurt Treasure Trove.

Hey GenX Says bloggers! Summers hot and working in a museum is an ideal thing!  However, I jumped right into the heat with a new world-view. It’s only a bit over a month since I stopped working at the museum and I have been focused on going forward with my goals.  I just feel stronger each day that I made the right choice, the girl working teaching kids in the park or inventorying the galleries or main storage will not become a founding museum director of a digitally driven Jewish museum in the future without taking huge risks and going forward!!
