Children’s Museum of Tacoma entry

 

In 2011, Jennifer won a commission to design, fabricate and install a large entry art work for the Children’s Museum of Tacoma, for their new location at 1501 Pacific Avenue, Tacoma, WA.

The concept: “ISH” is my interpretation of the Museum’s new logo as if drawn into a giant whimsical pop-up book.  The book Ish by Peter H. Reynolds is the inspiration, along with my son Bobby’s drawings of toys and shapes, which he did for me in an “ish” style.  The main character Ramon’s experience reminds us to nurture and protect our individual creativity and forego the tendency to make things just “right.”  It is most important to do what we love, and make our mark.
