Outpost for Contemporary Art




These photographs were taken during the Eagle Rock/ Highland Park Art Walk yesterday. Our first stop was The Outpost for Contemporary Art, which was featuring (among others) the work of Liz Kueneke.
She has created a series of hand-embroidered maps of the state of California, Highland Park, CA. and Barcelona, Spain, where she currently resides when not touring the U.S. and other countries.
The work is interactive, in that viewers are encouraged to mark areas on the maps that have some significance to them
with small bits of embroidery. I chose to mark Twenty-Nine Palms, CA. where I recently got married. Someone else before me had marked the area with a pink dot, my embroidery is the blue around the dot.
Sorry for the dark and blurry photos...it's June gloom here (dark and overcast, cooler temperatures- it reminds me of Seattle).
