Lastest news from Corinne Okada Takara, December 2008 Artist-in-Residence

Corinne Okada Takara completed a residency in the Kimball Education Gallery two years ago.  Her project, Rhythms in Space, explored the assembly of recycled materials into airy three-dimensional tapestries and wearable art, while presenting a visual footprint of diverse cultures in the Asian diaspora.  She pulled various motifs from the museum collection, along with visual patterns observed in the museum's surroundings.  Visitors created tapestries from these images using wire, netting, and other recycled materials. 

Now, Corinne is preparing for two large projects in the spring in San Jose.  One if funded with a Target Arts Grant and the other is self-funded.  Please check out her new site for the project at http://kck.st/fhbHwt.
