Tightrope: Walk The Line
Location: The Fine Art Galleries at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center 522 W Maple St Allentown, PA 18101
From: October 13, 2017 at 6:00pm to: 8:00pm
With the creation of “Tightrope: Walk the Line”, a wall installation that combines visual art with an original song, the most direct visual approach could have been executed by a much more literal interpretation of the song. However, I chose to come from an entirely different angle by drawing a parallel between the circus world and a group of people that society also looks upon as existing outside the mainstream: the trans community. Though much has changed for the trans community in the last few years, with regard to the public’s awareness, there is still a measure of societal ignorance and discomfort about the struggles trans individuals endure to become the people they believe they were always meant to be."
