Opulent Mobility 2022 is now open for submissions!
Opulent Mobility and Antelope Valley College challenge you to imagine a world where mobility, disability, and access are not merely functional, but opulent.
Share your art that re-imagines disability, mobility, and freedom!
We accept 2-D and sculptural work, music files, and performances on digital media. Deadline to submit work is July 31. A flat $20 fee covers administrative costs, and artists may share up to 10 works each.
Opulent Mobility is curated by A. Laura Brody and Anthony Tusler. Many thanks to Larissa Nickel and Antelope Valley College Gallery for offering to host this year's exhibit, and to the Numotion Foundation for their generous continued support.
Hey! I thought some of you might be interested in an online make your own duct tape mannequin workshop I'm offering. It's free and will be on Saturday, March 19 from 1-2 PM or 2-3 PM. (I'm figuring out the best time for it, but will record the workshop if those times aren't good for you.)
Custom duct tape dress forms are great if
1. ordinary dress forms don't work for you/your size or
2. you want a more squishable, alter-able form without those adjustable mannequin gaps.
Duct tape isn't a perfect solution, but it works well, and I can show you how to make it work even better.
Thanks so much! Contact me to sign up.
(Many thanks to Libby Pace, Gillian Efros, and Yvonne Guillen for joining in this long ago live duct taping session. Looking forward to meeting up and getting those forms adjusted and ready to use again!)

I have plenty of ideas for long form online classes, but I need your help. What sounds best to you?
These are my top 3 options:
Wearable Paper- make wearable paper art from paper and cardboard
Knock It Off Pattern Making- pattern a well loved item and make it anew
Politics of Pockets- why women's pockets are terrible and how to fix them
Pick one, pick more, or tell me what I'm missing!
Thank you so much. You rock.
