My paper speaker was included in the show, "Craft/Work," which opened at Beauty and Brawn Gallery, April 18.
The show's organizers, Nora Renick Rinehart and Rachel Wallis, were fantastic to work with, and immensely patient with all my technical issues (more on that below).

This poignant quilt, embroidered with the names of Chicago homicide victims, was detailed in the press.
I actually had a slightly different speaker intended for the show, but I had to swap out because the epoxy glue-down was too thick, which ended up muting the sound. The original is such a lovely object, though, with beautiful handmade paper from my former student, Alex Borgen, that I'm contemplating other uses for it. Perhaps a paper lantern?
