Exploring New Mediums

For the majority of my life, art was restricted to creativity within paint or crayons on paper. It wasn’t until later in my 20s that I considered art in various forms.  Street art, mosaics, recycled items and new mediums became my favorite art form.  The dimensions and different ideas displayed brought a unique energy to my outdated concept of ‘art’.  During my internship in 2009, I was able to experiment with a new medium when the interns were given the task of decorating a large Nebuchadnezzar bottle for the Art of Wine event.

Here is our finished product:

The interns' work of art, which was displayed in 2009.

Needless to say we didn’t continue our art exploration. Various other artists took a simple bottle and turned the medium into something brilliant.

All decorated bottles and other wine related art were displayed throughout the District at IU Health North Hospital Art of Wine on July 16. There was no denying the heat that day, and it was wonderful to see the over 5,000 participants attend the festival. It  became very clear to me throughout planning for the event that my best ‘medium’ is logistics.  From now on out, I will stick to what I do best!

IU Health North Hospital Art of Wine was an exciting event with lots of action behind the scenes. Enjoy some photos showing off my medium- logistics!
